LDAP Sync against large Active Directory groups

Hello All,

We're using Alfresco 3.2r here and are running into a problem synchronizing against large groups served up by active directory. If a group has more than 1500 members (on versions after win2000), AD wants to serve up the member list in a paged manner (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367017%28VS.85%29.aspx). Alfresco doesn't seem to support this, and our large groups are coming up empty. We have no problem synchronizing the users themselves or populating groups with less than 1500 members.

So my question is, does Alfresco support the AD member;range style paging on the group members attribute? It seems to me that would be a common requirement and there must be some bit of configuration we just haven't turned up yet. If it isn't supported, does anyone have any idea how we might work around this – it's a crucial feature for us. Searching the forums turns up nothing about this, so I am really hoping we have just overlooked something here.

Thank you!
