Adding directory servers

With Active Directory servers, you cannot filter the users before you import data. With LDAP servers, you can filter the users before you import data. Therefore you may want to add an Active Directory server that has LDAP compatibility as an LDAP server if you need to filter the data.

After you complete adding a directory server, you may want to set up synchronization.

See Synchronizing user accounts between directory servers and Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

To add directory servers

  1. In the console, click Admin, and then click Servers.

  2. Under Servers, select the management server to which you want to add a directory server.

  3. Under Tasks, click Edit the server properties.

  4. In the Server Properties for name of site dialog box, on the Directory Servers tab, click Add.

  5. In the Add Directory Server dialog box, type the name for the directory server that you want to add in the Name field.

  6. In the Add Directory Server dialog box, check Active Directory or LDAP as the Server Type.

  7. In the Add Directory Server dialog box, type the IP address, host name, or domain name in the Server IP address or name box.

    You must type the IP address, host name, or domain name of the directory server that you want to add.

  8. If you add an LDAP server, type the port number of the LDAP server in the LDAP Port box.

    You cannot change the values if you add an Active Directory server.

    The default port setting is 389.

  9. If you add an LDAP server, type the LDAP BaseDN in the LDAP BaseDN box.

  10. Type the user name of the authorized directory server account in the User Name box.

  11. Type the password for the directory server account in the Password box.

  12. If you want to connect with the directory server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), check Use Secure Connection.

    If you do not check this option, a normal unencrypted connection is used.

  13. Click OK.
