How to add all Users to Intranet?

I currently add Users to the SharePoint Intranet manually, using their LDAP account. When a new User joins, I put them in a Visitor's Group (SharePoint). Users login with their LDAP password.

But I want to automate the process, because there are hundreds more LDAP accounts that have never been added, and new ones are created daily.

Apparently, it has something to do with the Role Manager

Are you using Active Directory?  Or some random LDAP store?

If AD, just put "Authenticated Users" in the SharePoint group.  Or "Domain Users"

add the group nt authority\authenticated users in place of adding individual groups. this would ensure that all the users who can authenticate against the  LDAP would have the permission to log in into the site.

ACH1LLES: I'm not using AD. Random LDAP store.

logideepak: Since I'm not using AD, adding nt authority doesn't work for me.

are you able to build groups in your LDAP store? if so, build your groups and then add the LDAP group to your visitors group in sharepoint.  That way once a new user is added you create the user, add them to the LDAP group...

jimes82, short answer is no.

Some background: I have no oversight of the LDAP accounts. Whenver a new employee joins, another team creates an new LDAP account for that person.

Then my part. Once the LDAP is created, SharePoint will recognize it (vie settings already in place in Central Admin), so I add them in to become a SharePoint User.

My people picker in SP is not able to fetch LDAP groups, just Usernames.

how does your company handle company wide emails?
If you need to email a group of users do you insert them individually in the email?

I'm not to sure how to remedy your issue, since sharepoint uses groups...

There isn't any default DL_ALL? or something similiar?

The same IT people who create new LDAP user accounts also use some LDAP groups.

But I've never been able to add an LDAP group to SP. For some reason, it does not go out to fetch it when I go through the "Add New Users" process.
