By default, the search base you specify when you connect to an LDAP directory server is used for both user and group searches. You can use the qpconfig.xml file to specify a search base specifically for group searches.
About this task
For example, if the names of the groups you want to search are under ou=groups,o=acme in the directory name hierarchy, you could specify ou=groups,o=acme as the search base for groups so that only that branch of the directory is used for group searches.

Perform the following steps:
- Specify a value in the <base_dn> element of the qpconfig.xml file, for example:
- Save the modified qpconfig.xml file.
- Enter the following command at the server console to restart the HTTP task on the server:
