This issue occurs if the option "LDAP_GROUP_OBJECT_CLASS" from options manager is not installed. To resolve the issue, install the option "LDAP_GROUP_OBJECT_CLASS" with the default value "group" and recycle services. Also, verify if the value for @NX_LDAP_GROUP_OBJECT_CLASS is set to "group" in NX.ENV file.
