    Does anybody have a detailed description how to configure Netsight so that different active directory users will get different rights?
    I have done the following:
    add some groups in AD and add them in "Administration" "Users" "Authorization Groups" with the "memberOf=CN=GG_..." statements,
    customized the Capabilities and
    set "Authentication Type" to "LDAP"

    I can successfully login with my test account and will find the test account as "Authorized User" as "Automatic Member = True" and the Authorization Group name that I have configured.

    But now the problem:
    If I remove the user from the AD group that give him the rights, he will be able to login until I reboot the netsight server.

    There is a description available for the legacy java tool (but it will not fix my problem):

    I guess I have forgotten something but I didn't see, what it is.

    Any help is welcome.
