Synchronizing with Active Directory allows you to automatically transfer the OU structure to your Network tree. A group will be created for each OU in the current domain, and each computer in the domain will be moved to its proper place in the structure.
To perform AD synchronization, right-click the Network storage root and choose the corresponding option:
Placeholders will be created for each device discovered in the domain but not yet scanned. These placeholders are empty nodes that can be rescanned to retrieve inventory information. They will be displayed in the Network tree as. An information icon will be displayed to the right of the node name, and when you hover over it, the corresponding hint will appear.
You also get to choose which action to take if a previously scanned PC has not been discovered in the domain during synchronization: move it to a separate group or delete it.
You can configure TSD to perform synchronization on startup. This and several other switches are located in Options – General.
Active Directory synchronization is one-way only: it's only possible to import data from AD to TSD at this time.
