Scenario:

Computer is added to a distribution or security group in AD.  It was then imported into the NS for the first time.  This computer was then either moved out of that group and placed into a new group, or simply added to other groups.

Current actions:

All versions for the active directory connector will not process this change when they run their update import rule, and will only process this change when they run their full import rule.

Requested action:

The update import should process these changes, so that the full import isn't required to run on a daily basis.  This will be most useful for customers that have thousands of AD groups that get imported into the NS, the the update import will only process the changes made to the groups affected, whereas the full import imports all groups targeted by the rule.
