X company will be upgrading to a new Active Directory system where by the location is not fixed yet.I have few question on how will this impact the PGP. Current AD has the FQDN as x.com.my and IP address of X.X.X.X..

 

Suppose the change will be to  FQDN – john.com.my or john.x.com.my and IP address of Y.Y.Y.Y,

How will this impact the current PGP systems.?

 

1.We have to change the LDAP configuration in the PGP server right?Is that the only configuration need to be changed and all will be normal?

2.What about the client, will there be any changes need to be done?

3.Do we need to re-install the clients once the changes take effect or changes only at the server?

4.What is the effort needed to make the changes.

Clients are configured to point to the Universal Server, so there would be no change needed on the client side.  You would need to change your LDAP information on the server to properly sync the client machines with Active Directory.

You will also need to make sure that john.x.com.my is added as a manage domain on the Universal Server.

If using Single-Sign-On, there may be some issues at first with users logging in.  They may not be able to select the proper domain at Bootguard.  This should still allow them to log in and get to the Windows login page.  If they log in to the correct domain at that point, the information should propagate to the PGP client, and the should not have to repeat the process.
