Import users automatically

The BigAnt Server Console allows you to import user accounts in 2 ways.

Using Active Directory to authenticate user account: Check this option if you use Active Directory to import user accounts.

  1. Import User Accounts from Active Directory

    The BigAnt Server Console has the Active Directory Import Wizard that allows you to import user accounts from the Active Directory (LDAP) catalog by Organizational Units. It is easy to create a user database in a few minutes if your corporate network is based on the Windows Domain structure.

    OUM-server

    Click import domain user and enter details of your domain server to import users.

    From the pop up window, please enter your Domain server name, your domain admin account and password. Then click OK to import domain users, this may take a few moments to process.

    For example: Domain server--> [MyDomain] Admin Account-->[Administrator] Password-->[****]

    OUM-server

    Notice:

    1. Your BigAnt server has to connect to the same domain network as the domain needs to be imported.
    2. Your DNS IP must be the same as your domain server IP address.
    3. Please enter domain server name instead of server IP address for the field Domain Server.

    After the AD has been successfully imported, it will look as the following (My TestAD in this case.)

    OUM-server

    By the way, we strongly recommend that you should import domain users with our AntADSync Tool which is in the default setup folder. This tool provides you with choice of what to import and what not to. Besides, it will automatically synchronize the IM users with those in the AD. The interface is as following.
