Open Directory - Adding user to 2 groups without promt?
I am in the process of setting up an open directory domain at a school..
The school would like the students to have different network shares mapped depending on which year they're in.
So I have created individual groups for the year groups and added the relevent users to each year.
I have also create and added all students to an "All Students" group, I wanted to use this for applying preferences to all student accounts.
Unfortunatley when the OD accounts are set up like this it means that the students are prompted to pick either "All Students" OR "YearBlah" when they log in..
They only work around I can think of is to delete the "All Students" group and apply the "All Student" polcies to all of the year groups individually.
I am a bit reluctant to do this as it will A - take a long time and B - make it difficult to quickly apply policies to all students.
So my question is - is there a way for users to be a member of 2 group in OD without promting the user to choose which group they want to be a member of.
Many thanks in advance!

You should be able to create your two groups with the individual users and then place those two groups in an overall group? with the ovrall group doing preferences and then the two smaller ones doing mapped drives etc

Yup, I thought that would work too. But when the user logs in they are then asked to choose between the 2 groups.
