Adding AD security group as Admin in ePO ?

Jump to solution

Hi People,

How can I add my IT-Support team AD security group to ePO v5.3.1 server as Admin ?

This is required by the PCI-DSS compliance policy so that only Admin AD account can have access as the group administrator of ePO server.

Thanks,

Hi mekafir,

In order to add your IT-Support team AD security group to ePO - Group Administrator permission set use the following steps:

Register your Active Directory/Domain Controller with ePO under Menu > Configuration > Registered Servers.

Then go to Menu > User Management > Permission Sets.

Select the Group Admin permission set.

Click Edit for 'Names and users' and then add the AD security group as a mapping for that permission set.

Users will need to authenticate with 'domain\username' as their username in the ePO console.

Kind regards,

George

Hi,,

just one hint.

Activate the "Active Directory User Login" in the EPO Server Settings section to allow Active Directory User login.

Cheers
