Answers to common questions regarding Group Family and how it functions within Active Roles.
Question: When does the Group Family get updated?
Answer: Group Family get's updated on the initial creation of the group, and if a scheduled task is set to run, or if the task is manually forced to run.
Question: Does the Group Family recreate or update each group every time the scheduled task is executed to run?
Answer: No, the scheduled task will only update the target groups if there are modifications pending. The source Group Family Object will have the attribute edsvaGFLastRunTime updated with a current date stamp to reflect the last execution time.
Question: I executed my Group Family and waited the time for the scheduled task, and there is no event being created in the Active Roles Admin Service logs, why is this not being logged?
Answer: Browse to the properties of the Group Family object and ensure that the Group Family is executing on the same server that you are looking for the logs. Also, ensure that there is a server listed in the Execute This Task On: combo box.
