Understanding LDAP Security Groups - Need assistance...



Can someone walk me through a simple step-by-step outline of how to adjust LDAP security groups so that they work properly with report objects and folders. I've added a number of LDAP groups to our server and see the user accounts in them but am having difficulty understanding how to apply these groups to the right folders and have access behave correctly. As an example I have a couple groups where a few users are in LDAP under MKTDEPT and others are under SYSUSR. A few users are in both. I want to give MKTDEPT view rights to a folder whereas SYSUSR gets schedule rights. I'm having an issue with teh Everyone group in that I have to set it to at least 'view' for anyone to see anything. This is even though the MKTDEPT and SYSUSER user security is set lower. So what's the best approach to get this to work right? Any steps or documents that could help me out would be terrific.
