Group name size limit too restrictive on Active Directory Users
The name size limit was changed to 16 chars, described as an OS limitation. In my case we use Active Directory and some group names are longer than this limit. Can't there be something done about it?

- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
Unix systems don't allow for as long of group names as Windows. Since they're directly put into the groups file of the system, allowing that would open up a ton of potential problems to work around.

Well, to tell you the truth i mistakenly thought that Active Directory support was possible in the policies itself, i.e to allow users in an Active Directory group access to a policy in order to browse the internet to some sites and restrict it to only users in that group.
If Active Directory support is just for logging in pfSense, then this feature request is not needed by myself.
Sadly, pfSense can't replace Watchguard in our company because of this.
