Choosing your Active Directory Scopes

Active Directory scopes determine what information will be collected when you run the discovery. There are several steps you should take to properly design your discovery.

AD Discovery: Include scopes

You can include domains, OUs and containers in your scope. You can collect the same domain information in more than one Active Directory discovery with an additional option to create multiple tasks for each domain. For full information on using the browser to add scopes, see Step 2b: Choose scopes for your cloud discoveries .

Click Add.
Click Include to add to your selected scopes list.
Click OK

AD Discovery: Optionally refine your scope list with exclusions

Active Directory® excluded objects are resolved after included objects. For example, if you include an object that exists below an excluded object in the AD structure, it will not be collected, as the exclusion will take precedence. For more information, see Using the Browser to Include and Exclude Scopes .

Click Add.
Click Exclude

AD Discovery: Optionally select one or more domain controllers

To enumerate your domain, Enterprise Reporter looks to domain controllers. Depending on the domain controllers chosen, the time it takes to perform the collection may vary. You can either allow Enterprise Reporter to choose the first available domain controller returned by Active Directory, or you can select one or more that will optimize collection time. In this case, select one or more domain controllers that are located physically close to the cluster you assigned to the discovery, or one or more that you know are fast computers.

To assign one or more specific domain controllers, choose Select available domain controllers, and then select the domain controllers from the list, or choose Select Available Domain Controllers from current Sub-Net and then select the domain controllers from the list.
