AD custom group traversing

When configuring custom AD groups in Db2wh, it seems like the product is not traversing the OU entirely.

For example, we use a custom group for the BLUADMINGRP group which is in OU=global,ou=groups,ou=admingroup

and we use a custom group for BLUUSERSGRP which is in OU=global,ou=groups.


When configuring the connection to AD in the GUI, you need to supply Group DN. So we specify: OU=global,ou=groups


The config then fails, stating it cannot find the group: BLUADMINGRP.  This is making us believe in only searches: OU=global,ou=groups and does not go down into: ou=admingroup.
