    Can EPO auto update from Active Directory?

    vincelewin

      Hi all,

       

      Can I do this and if so how does one set it up?

       

      Thanks for any help.

          Hi vincelewin, if you mean you want to add new computers to ePO using an AD sync then yes, you can do it.

           

          You just need to creatre a new group under system tree (or use an existing one), then clic on the Group Details tab and edit the Synchronization Type option.

           

          here you just need to select Active Directory and you'll be asked for credentials to read the AD structure and even to deploy McAfee Agent to new discovered computers

            Hi Laszlo G.

             

            Thanks for this.

             

            I have configured a group and when I synchronised it I can see the new system I added to the domain but I cannot see anywhere the ability to configure the frequency of checking AD for new machines. Is this possible if not do you know how often it checks?

             

            I also have configured the deployment agent options but as yet it has still failed to deploy the agent to the new system, I have used the domain admin credentials in this test environment.

             

            Thanks in advance
