Information:

This feature helps you synchronize the SEPS server with Active Directory groups.

Once you synchronize the group, the clients will get installed on all the endpoints which come under your domain network.

A periodic check is carried out to find if any new endpoint is added to your network. When a new endpoint is added, the client gets automatically installed on that endpoint.

You can also exclude certain endpoints from the Active Directory group so that the client is not installed on these endpoints.

Notes:

  • To synchronize with Active Directory your console should be installed on the domain machine or should be a member of the domain.
  • Synchronization cannot be done with 'Default' group.
  • Groups which are shown in Red Color are already synced with Active Directory.
  • The user should have permissions of “Domain Admins” to synchronize with Active Directory.
  • Synchronization time interval is GLOBAL.
