Adding computers with Active Directory

If you use Active Directory within your organization then you can include this in your network scan. 

Step 1 - Enter user credentials

Click on Network > Remote Installation in the main menu. Enter the user credentials with sufficient access rights to list the computers in the Operational Unit you wish to maintain. 

Step 2 - Add Organizational Unit

Click on Network > Active Directory and enter the LDAP path of the Operational Unit you wish to maintain and link credentials entered in step 1.

The required LDAP format is:

LDAP://[DomainController]:[Port]/OU=[OperationalUnitPath],DC=[DomainName]

where:

[DomainController] - This is the name of the Domain Controller.
[Port] - Port on which the Domain Controller handles (default is 389).
[OperationalUnitPath] - The path from the root to the Operational Unit one wants to list.
[DomainPath] - The Domain in which the Operational Unit is located.

Example:

LDAP://server01:389/OU=developers,OU=computers,DC=piriform,DC=com

This corresponds to the "developers" operational unit which is located in the "computers OU" and they belong to the "piriform.com" domain.

Step 3 - Scan network
