Technical Solution


 In case if different security groups are imported by separate import rules it causes a problem when membership is overwritten.

For example: GroupA and GroupB contain same object Computer1. Two separate import rules created to import groups. First import rule (GroupA) imports group and correctly assigns Computer1 as a member. Second import rule creates GroupB and assigns Computer1 as a member. However, Computer1 is being removed from GroupA when second import rule runs.
