Basically I am just trying to create an LDAP search folder within this 3rd party software. I'm using standard Windows 2003 parameters. I can't seem to be able to create a search filter/query that has multiple groups.. I have tried all kinds of different arrangements. I either get ldap search filter errors, or I get results but not the right results or a get nothing returned in the results, zero.. Here is example of a search query I am trying to create that searches multiple groups.. Anyone know how to do this?

(&(objectclass=user)(|(memberof=somedn)(memberof=some­dn2)(memberof=somedn3))

Can you test your same filter in something like ADFind?

This filter should work. It will get all users that are a member of group1 or group2.

"(&(objectclass=user)(|(memberof=CN=GROUP1,DC=domain,DC=local)(memberof=CN=GROUP2,DC=domain,DC=local)))"
