Search for users, computers and groups in the SafeGuard Enterprise Database

To display objects in the Find Users, Computers and Groups dialog, you need Read only or Full access rights for the relevant objects.
Note: When you search for objects, you only get the search results within the areas (domain) for which you have been granted access as a security officer. Only a Master Security Officer can successfully perform a root search process.

In Users and Computers, you can search for objects using different filters. For example, you can easily identify duplicates that may have been caused by an AD synchronization process with the Duplicate users and computers filter. This filter shows all computers with the same name in one domain and all users with the same name, logon name or pre-2000 logon name in one domain.

To search for objects:

  1. In the navigation area of the SafeGuard Management Center, click Users and Computers.
  2. In the Users and Computers navigation area, select the required container.
  3. In the SafeGuard Management Center menu bar, click Edit > Find.

    The Find Users, Computers and Groups dialog is displayed.

  4. Select the required filter from the Find drop-down list.
  5. In the In field, the selected container is displayed.

    You can change this by selecting a different option from the drop-down list.

  6. If you search for a specific object, enter the required search name in the Search Name field.
  7. With the Clear results after each search check box, specify whether results should be cleared after each search process.
  8. Click Find now.

The results are displayed in the Find Users, Computers and Groups dialog. If you click on one of the results in this dialog, the relevant entry is marked in the Users and Computers tree structure. If you have searched for duplicates for example, you can now easily delete them.
