Altiris NS Active Directory Import not importing computers
So we are running Symantec NS Version 7.0.7416. It's exciting. We obviously need to upgrade to 7.1, but that's another story.
I set up the AD import through Actions -> Discover -> Import Microsoft Active Directory. Currently I'm using a specific DC. Before I just had the domain, but both yeild the saem results.
The OU structure imports successfully, but none of the servers are showing up in the OUs.
But if I go to All Resources the servers are showing up. I assume that's from the Polices -> Discovery and Inventory -> Inventory -> Collect Full Server Inventory policy which is running successfully.
I found this post, http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/active-directory-import-missing-some-computers-import, which said he was successful by deleting the servers and then running the import again. I tried that, but it didn't work.
Basically, I just want to import, all servers from AD and have them inventoried. Then we can create filters or groups based off the OUs, that way when new servers are built we can schedule the AD import to run daily and the new servers will be added to the required filters/groups and we can patch then, run reports, etc.
I think I'm just missing a step or maybe just switch to SCCM or something. I've just been using this product for a few years now and the things that should be so simple are a pain. It shouldn't be this hard (that's what he/she said ).
