This issue has been solved. See solution.

Configured LDAP attribute "memberOf"  to match directory users to policy

One user is not being matched although he was add to active directory group. All the rest of group members are matched.

First thing i would do is to turn on debug logging to see why PGP universal server is unable to group this user correctly.

It would be helpful to know which version of PGP universal server you are running.. previous versions (pre 3.0 i think) had some serious issues with LDAP referrals and being unable to add users appropriately without first manually adding the user to a consumer group then having the user re-enroll. 

After you turn on debug logging have the user re-enroll again and watch the groups and client logs.

a side note, if a user enrolls before they can be put into a correct AD group, it will take 6-12 hours for PGP universal server (i'm running 3.1.2, don't know if this is still an issue with 3.2) to re-group consumers. There's a work around to force the universal server to re-group consumers.. it requires SSH access and using the pgpgrouptool.
