Clients - Active Directory
G DATA Administrator's Active Directory support imports computer objects from local domains' organizational units. Create a new group, right click it, and select the option Assign AD item to group. In the dialog window that opens, select Assign to AD group and choose the LDAP server. The Select button will provide a list of available servers. It is also possible to connect to another domain by clicking Add. The option Automatically install G DATA Security Client on newly added computers will initiate a remote installation of G DATA Security Client for every computer that is added to the Active Directory domain, as long as it meets the remote installation requirements. Enter User name and Password for a domain account with sufficient permissions on clients, as well as the installation Language.
By default, G DATA ManagementServer synchronizes its data with the Active Directory server every six hours. This value can be changed under General settings > Synchronization.
Active Directory changes are automatically synchronized with Management Server. However, if clients are moved between domains, the Active Directory link of the Management Server group for the previous domain must be manually unassigned. After assigning an Active Directory item from the new domain to a Management Server group, the clients will then be automatically synchronized to the appropriate node on the Clients tab.
