You can import and synchronize information about user accounts and computer accounts from an Active Directory server or an LDAP directory server. You can import group structures, or Organizational Units (OUs). Symantec Endpoint Protection can then automatically synchronize the groups on the Clients tab with those on the directory server.
You can assign security policies to the imported OU. You can also copy users from an imported organizational unit to other groups that are listed in the View Clients pane. The policy that was assigned to a group before the group was imported has priority. A user account can exist in both the OU and in an outside group. The policy that was applied to the outside group has priority.
