When configuring an Account Collector to collect groups to sub-groups membership, the resolution fails and the subgroups are collected with type "Account" under the "Member Type" field.
In the following example, we are using groups and sub-groups collected from Active Directory.
1. We have two groups in AD as below Image description
2.Sub-Group is the member of Top-Group. Image description
3. Account Collector with the below configuration for the groups.
4. Following is the subgroup resolution.
5. Collect data, then check the monitoring >> raw data >> Group Membership tab, you will find that the Top-Group to Sub-Group resolution is failing and the Sub-Group is collected as an "Account", not as a "group": Image description
