It would be great to have the VNC manager use LDAP to scan a certain container/folder in AD at certain periods for changes in workstations. This way computer registration would be more automated. It would also be nice if the computer description (from AD) could be used for the "Name" of the workstation. Usually the Address and name are the same if Dynamic DNS is running in the environment.

Shane,
can I please clarify with you - are you aware that Dynamic Search Folders allow to scan an AD and also allow to specify lists of OUs to scan?

With regards of AD integration. In the nearest time in addition to the  My Registered Computers, Entire Network root tree nodes, we are planning to add My Active Directories node. A user will be able to register an AD connection under this node and browse the AD in a way similar to the Registered Computers sub-tree.

There is no need need to enter DC=co,DC=dodge,DC=wi,DC=us, you already entered this information into the address field. Just enter OU=Juneau and it should work just fine.

Ok, with these settings



dc1.co.dodge.wi.us



OU=Juneau



Username co.dodge.wi.us\administrator



Clicking on the Test Connection gives me "Failed to extablish test connection" "There is no such object on the server"



I know it is not the logon credentials due to when I put a wrong password, it comes back with "Logon failure"



Thanks

I can confirm we have successfully integrated VNCM into our 2003 mixed mode domain.



We use it to pull out a list of domain controllers.

We are having the same problem linking a Dynamic Search Folder to any OU in our Active Directory.   We have over 10K machines in our domain and I need to link at an OU level so that I only deal with my 1000 machines.

Our organization's domain address is windomain.location.org and our LDAP OU structure is

LDAP://OU=branch,OU=dept,DC=windomain,DC=location,DC=org

I put   windomain.location.org   in the domain address field and   OU=branch,OU=dept  in the LDAP subtree path, and click Test Connection and get error.  If I try to network scan this DSF, nothing appears. 

What format is required to define the LDAP location for a DSF?

The problem with the 1000 machines limit has been fixed in the upcoming v5.5.3.0 CTP build. This build will be released sometime next week. Most probably on Tuesday 26th.

I just some insight on why only 1000 computers were returned by AD search. As we recently found out, by default, Active Directory's search provider returns only first 1000 items. To workaround this problem the application making AD query must configure AD search provider to fetch all the items rather than the first 1000.

Actually the problem isn't that I only see 1000 of the 10000 machines in our domain. 

Rather, the probem is that I can't get a DSF to link to any OU in our Active Directory.  I even tried to link it to a small OU with just 75 machines.  And it just can't seem to see connect to the AD at all to see the OU structure.

I'm not sure I'm formatting my domain address and LDAP subtree properly in VNC Manager as I described in my previous post.
