That was exactly the way we ran it, per that documentation, but it didn't
appear to do anything. So, I figured out that just adding/removing users
from groups would trigger it to update ALL groups for that user, so I just
bulk added everyone to a group and problem solved.

This is the documented way to do it.
22.214.171.124. Synchronizing memberOf Values
The MemberOf Plug-in automatically manages the memberOf attribute on group
member entries, based on the configuration in the group entry itself.
However, the memberOf attribute can be edited on a user entry directly
(which is improper) or new entries can be imported or replicated over to
the server that have a memberOf attribute already set. These situations
create inconsistencies between the memberOf configuration managed by the
server plug-in and the actual memberships defined for an entry.
Directory Server has a memberOf repair task which manually runs the
plug-in to make sure the appropriate memberOf attributes are set on
entries. There are three ways to trigger this task:
In the Directory Server Console
Using the fixup-memberof.pl script
Running a cn=memberof task,cn=tasks,cn=config tasks entry
126.96.36.199.1. Initializing and Regenerating memberOf Attributes Using
The fixup-memberof.pl script launches a special task to regenerate all of
the memberOf attributes on user entries based on the defined member
attributes in the group entries. This is a clean-up task which synchronizes
the membership defined in group entries and the corresponding user entries
and overwrites any accidental or improper edits on the user entries.
Open the tool directory for the Directory Server instance,
Run the script, binding as the Directory Manager.
./fixup-memberof.pl -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w password
The fixup-memberof.pl command is described in more detail in the
Configuration and Command-Line Tool Reference.
If it is not working for you, then please describe the steps you took.
or you have to make a change to each pre-existing user to trigger the
memberOf updating. The easiest way to do that is to simply create a group
and add everyone to it, then remove it (unless of course you actually have
a use for said group). If you already have a group with everyone in it, you
can probably create a new group, and add that group as a member of the new
