Hi wingnut144, did you registered the AD server under registered servers or did you just wrote down data under the sync group option?
If you go under Menu->Configuration->Registered Servers you can set a new AD server and test its connection when configuring it so you'll be able to see if it can connecto or not to AD
If I go to Menu -> Configuration -> Registered Servers and select the option to add a new server, the only options I have are:
Am I missing a option? It doesn't seem like LDAP would be the correct option to pick in this situation......
That's right, there you have to choose LDAP and under the nex screen you'll be able to select the "Active Directory" option
Ok, I created the LDAP/AD server, and tested the connection. It says it was sucessful.
But when I try the AD sync, I'm still getting:
6/20/13 8:05:35 AM Started: Synchronizing 1 groups 6/20/13 8:05:35 AM Synchronizing 1 synchronized groups 6/20/13 8:05:35 AM Synchronization point My Organization failed to connect to active directory server ICSSCODCp02, user: ICS\comadmin 6/20/13 8:05:35 AM AD Synchronization (Synchronized 1 groups)NameStart DateEnd DateUser NameStatusSourceDuration
1 thing I'm confused about, our organization has its its own OU in the structure, we share the AD system with a bunch of different agencies. Will this sync ALL those users with my ePO system? I don't see a way to just select our own OU
Under the AD synced group details you should use the "Use registered LDAP server" option instead of "Use domain" so you won't need to write down user and password again.
I guess I'm not seeing what you're referring to........
If I edit the AD sync server task, which is what I think you're talking about, there is nothing that says 'use registered LDAP server'..........
This is because you are setting the automated task for Ad sync but you haven't defined how it will synced yet.
First of all go under system tree and select the base group you want to be synced with AD and, on the right, go to the "Group Details" tab:
Once you click on teh "edit" link you will be able to set the AD sync user and password:
After this just go down and select the root container you want to sync computers from and next to the bottom you'll find the "
Finally you just need to click on "Save" at the bottom and the automated task will execute the AD sync task whenever you want
That worked perfectly! Thanks for all your help
Ok, so it imported the missing computer names, they still show as 'unmanaged' even though the option to install the client was selected.
Might this be because the machines are not turned on? If so, will the client be installed automatically when those computers come on? Or will I need to push the client out to those unmanaged machines manually at a later time?
