Use the list_pending_zone_groups command to check Active Directory and return a list of pending import groups for the currently selected zone. Pending import groups are group profiles that have been imported from Linux or UNIX computers, but not yet mapped to any Active Directory group. If executed in a script, this command outputs its list to stdout so that the output appears in the shell where the script is executed. The command does not return a Tcl list back to the executing script. Use get_pending_zone_groups to return a Tcl list.

Return value

This command returns a list to stdout of pending import groups for the currently selected zone. Each entry in the list contains the following fields, separated by colons (:):

  • Distinguished name (DN) of the pending import group as it is stored in Active Directory. The distinguished name for each pending import group includes a prefix that consists of “PendingGroup” and the globally unique identifier (GUID) for the group.
  • UNIX group name.
  • Numeric group identifier (GID).



This example returns the list of groups similar to this:
