Set up an Active Directory connection

To import accounts from Active Directory, enter the domain controller name and settings of the account with access rights to Active Directory:

  1. Launch Connect Directory Sync and go to AD settings.
  2. In the Authorization section, enter the username and password for the account with read rights to Active Directory.
  3. In the Realm field, enter the name of the Kerberos realm that corresponds to the Active Directory domain. Usually the realm name is the same as the domain name. For example, EXAMPLE.COM.
  4. Go to Parameters and in the Host field, enter the domain controller name. For example, dc1.example.com.
    Attention. Do not use localhost as the domain controller name, otherwise it won't be authorized in the domain.
  5. To import account data from the global directory, enable the Global directory option.
Note. We recommend keeping the default values for timeout fields.
