did you choose to move systems from their original group to synch group??!
What do you mean? Could you explain? I am new to ePO4.0 and the product guide is patchy in my eyes.
sytems > system tree>
select the group you synchronized with AD
group > synchronization type edit>
on Systems that exist elsewhere in the System Tree:
choose Move systems from their current System Tree location to the synchronized group
save the changes
and run the syncronization
Currently im running ePO 3.6.1 across 4 servers managing about 12000 workstations. We have not used Active Directory Synchronization on the current infrastructure. We are now planning for an upgrade to ePO 4.0 and the client has requested we look into AD Synchronization. They are upgrading their servers to AD 2008 this year and im not sure if ePO 4.0 supports synchronization with AD 2008.
Can anyone advise on this?
I have set up ePO 4.0 and have synchronised with 2008 Active Directory, no problem. If you have an OU for your company setup (for example ACME), then be sure only to sync. with that OU, otherwise the directory structure is populated with ALL containers from AD. You can set exceptions but this is far from ideal.
Am i right in thinking that syncing AD requires just doing the following... ?
System -> New Systems -> Select your Options and under 'Systems to Add' and just select your Domain ?
Or is there an AD sync. Tool that needs to be run ?
