Synchronize with Active Directory now

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.

You can synchronize Sophos Enterprise Console groups (synchronization points) with Active Directory containers immediately, without waiting for the next scheduled synchronization.

To synchronize with Active Directory immediately:

  1. In the Groups pane, select the group (synchronization point) which you want to synchronize with Active Directory. Right-click the group and select Synchronization Properties.
  2. In the Synchronization Properties dialog box, make changes as appropriate and click OK.
