The name of the forest to which the domain belongs. This name should be given if group memberships are mapped cross-domain.

Enable recycling bin

(As of functional level Windows Server 2008 R2) Specifies whether the recycling bin is enabled. The property is imported by the synchronization and should not be edited in One Identity Manager.

Retention period

(As of function level Windows Server 2008 R2) Retention period of objects in the recycling bin. The property is imported by the synchronization and should not be edited in One Identity Manager.

Complex passwords

Specifies whether complex passwords are implemented in the domain. Complex passwords must fulfill certain minimum prerequisites. For more information, see the documentation for implementing Windows Server.

For domains from the functional levels Windows Server 2008 R2 and above, it is possible to define this setting using account policies.

Default home drive

Structural object class

Structural object class representing the object type. By default, the domains in One Identity Manager are created using the object class DOMAINDNS.

Defining categories for the inheritance of Active Directory groups

Groups and be selectively inherited by user accounts and contacts in One Identity Manager. The groups and user accounts (contacts) are divided into categories in the process. The categories can be freely selected and are specified using a mapping rule. Each category is given a specific position within the template. The mapping rule contains tables that map the user accounts (contact) and the groups. Specify your categories for user account (contacts) in the table for user accounts (contacts). Enter your categories fro groups in the group table. Each table contains the Position 1 to Position 31 category positions.

To define a category

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Domains category.

  2. Select the domain in the result list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Select the Categories tab.

Entering and testing trusted Active Directory domains

For an explanation of the concept of trusts in Active Directory, refer to your Windows Server documentation. Users can access resources in other domains depending on the domain trusts.

  • Explicit trusts are loaded into Active Directory by synchronizing with One Identity Manager. Domains which are trusted by the currently synchronized domains are found.

  • To declare implicit two-way trusts between domains within an Active Directory forest in One Identity Manager, ensure that the parent domain is entered in all child domains.

To enter the parent domain

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Domains category.

  2. Select the domain in the result list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Enter the parent domain.

  5. Save the changes.

    Implicit trusts are created automatically.

To test trusted domains

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Domains category.

  2. Select the domain in the result list.

  3. Select Specify trust relationships.

    This shows domains that trust the selected domain.
