I am now facing a condition that I have no AD in one company, because we have many branch office,
and many of them do not have a specific IT professional, so it is hard for now to build a complete AD.
Now the question is, EEPC 6 requires to be connected to a AD through ePO, without AD you can't do a "EE ldap" jop,
and you will have no EEPC users to assign.
So is there a way to skip the EE ldap in ePO and create standalone users in EEPC 6 (just like in EEPC 5.2X)?
why we don't use EEPC 5.2X is that, we have a large number of lenovo laptops 0196-rv4,
when using EEPC 5.2.X, those laptops always hang and crash in pre-boot enviroment. (Even in 5.2.9)
But using EEPC 6 is OK.
If there is no way to use EEPC 6 without AD, I'd like to know will it be possible to do so in future releases?
Thanks for your help!!
EEPC 6.x requires an AD server tto be configured in ePO to obtain the users and their information. There is no way to skip or bypass this I'm afraid.
Could you explain how you are planning to setup your ePO servers, are you intending to have one at each branch office ?
