Resolution

fact
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x

symptom
Error: 'Group nameofgroup not found' when attempting to add a user to a group with the command line interface (CLI). 

symptom
Unable to add a user to a group using the CLI.

symptom
Unable to perform groupmemberadd operations using the CLI.

cause
The DRA server is not registered with the agent.

cause
Agents are not deployed.

cause
The group display name is different than the pre-Windows2000 name, and and you are using the group display name in the CLI syntax.

fix

To add a user to a group use the following complete CLI syntax:

ea /server:nameofdraserver /domain:nameofdomain group "pre-Windows2000nameofgroup" memberadd nameofuser 

This syntax allows you to add a user to a group regardless of the cause.

If the DRA server is not registered with the agent or the agent is not deployed, you can also work around this issue by deploying or refreshing agents with the Delegation and Configuration console:

  1. Open Configuration Management / Update Administration Server Options.
  2. If agents have not been deployed, select Automatically install the NetIQ DRA agent service.
  3. If agents have been deployed, click Refresh Agents.
