Nested Netgroups with LDAP


This question is for both 7-mode and cDOT.


Our LDAP Netgroups are nested, and can be 8 levels deep. 


According to this KB - https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?id=3010240&page=content&locale=en_US


It appears im about of luck because all the nested groups expand and the character limit is what we hit


So, if UNIX_COMPUTERS is top level and i do 

getXXbyYY netgrp UNIX_COMPUTERS servername


I get an error, but if I try a few levels up, it finds it.  

Am I totally out of luck.  What are others doing with large netgroups and LDAP
