3.0 Configuring the Directory Service

After you install ZENworks® Endpoint Security Management, you must create and configure a directory service before you can start managing devices in your system.

The New Directory Service Configuration Wizard lets you create a directory service configuration that defines the scope of your ZENworks Endpoint Security Management client installations. The new configuration uses your existing directory service to define the logical boundary for your user-based and computer-based client installations.

The wizard guides you through the process of selecting the directory service and the containers where current and future client accounts reside.

The wizard also lets you synchronize the directory entries included in the new configuration. This synchronization is performed in the background so you can immediately begin using your new configuration.
