Configuring Active Directory Groups and Users as Client Owners for Windows File Servers

You can add active directory users or groups as client owners for servers or laptops using the following procedure. All active directory groups that are part of the Administrators group are set as client owners. All domain user profiles that are created on the laptop or server are added as client owners.

Note: Restricted client owners are not created during the client owner discovery operation. Restricted client owners are users who are part of a restricted group such as -[admin,administrator,administrador,root].

Before You Begin

We recommend that you configure AD users or groups from the Name Servers page. If you have not configured the AD users or groups, then the domain that is discovered is added to the CommCell Console.

Procedure

    Skip this step if you want to include Active Directory and CommCell user groups as client owners.
