About the Active directory source dialog box

Right-click the Network view's Directory item, and click Manage directory to open the Active directory source dialog box. This dialog box allows you to start managing a new directory, or to view properties of a currently managed directory. Clicking the Add or Edit button shows the Active Directory source dialog box, where you can enter your Active Directory information:

  • Directory path: Lets you specify the LDAP directory to be managed. An example of an LDAP directory and the correct syntax is ldap.<companyname>.com. For example, you might type ldap.xyzcompany.com.
  • Authentication: Lets you log in as the following user (that is, you specify a user path and name and the user password).
