Sandeep More commented on KNOX-536:

I was able to successfully authenticate against nested OUs using Knox's PAM 
support (0.10.0), I tested it against OpenLDAP for now and nested OUs and 
nested groups are visible to Knox. [~eyang] and [~jeffreyr97] I tried to 
document the test as a blog post 
so it might be useful for others (and me in the future), can you take a look 
and see if this covers your use-case and any other that you can think of, it 
will be really great to get your feedback !
