Disabling nested groups from remote authentication

If you have remote authentication enabled, you can disable nested group authentication so that only individual users and not group members can remotely authenticate to Performance Manager. You might disable nested groups when you want to improve Active Directory authentication response time.

Before you begin

You must be logged in as an Active Directory domain user to perform this task. Logging in as an Active Directory administrator is not required.

About this task

Disabling support for nested groups in Performance Manager might reduce the authentication time. If nested group support is disabled and if a remote group is added to Performance Manager, individual users must be members of the remote group to authenticate to Performance Manager.
