    ePO 4.5 - Two Domains

    Daveb3d

      Our company was recently purchased by another.  As such, all our users/machines will be migrating to their domain.  First, however, ours will become a resource domain.  Because we use Endpoint Encryption things are a bit tricky with migrating user accounts, so this is necessary.   Are there any issues with using ePO 4.5 with two domains?  When machines are migrated, will ePO create new machine instances or keep the existing ones?

       

      Thanks!

          In my opinion better would be do not touch original ePO server because in present EEPC version is not possible to migrate machine keys. Thus better would be to register new AD server in ePO and synchronize user from it.

            There is no problem to use ePolicy with one or more domains. ePo server could be a standalone server ou a domain server.

            If you want to sync groups with AD,all you need to do is place the correct credentials in the 'Group details - Syncronization type' and in the 'Push Agent' option (if you want to automaticaly deploy the agent).

             

            Althought, if you want to be able to login into ePO console with user-accounts from both domains, you must check this document:

            I've done the above configuration in a customer with 3 domains.
            There one very important recomendation. The DNS must be working fine. So check the dns suffixs in the epo server or the stub zones in the dns server.
