Turn synchronization on or off

Before you perform this task:

  • If you use role-based administration, you must have the Computer search, protection and groups right. For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.
  • If you want to protect computers in synchronized groups automatically, make sure you have prepared the computers as described in Prepare for installation of security software.
  • If you have a complex Active Directory structure and want to synchronize domain local groups or nested Active Directory groups, enable this functionality as described in knowledgebase article 122529.

To turn synchronization with Active Directory on or off:

  1. To turn the synchronization on, run the Synchronize with Active Directory wizard as described in Synchronize with Active Directory.
  2. To turn the synchronization off, select the group (synchronization point) which you do not want to synchronize with Active Directory anymore, right-click and select Remove Synchronization. Click Yes to confirm.
