Adding an Account Discovery rule

Use the Account Discovery Rule dialog to define the search criteria to be used to discover directory accounts.

Note: For Unix, all search terms return exact matches. A user name search for "ADM" only returns "ADM", not "AADMM" or "1ADM2". To find all names that contain "ADM", you must include ".*" in the search term; like this: .*ADM.*.

For Windows and Directory, the search terms is contained in the result. A user name search for "ADM" returns "ADM", "AADMM", and "1ADM2".

All search terms are case sensitive. On Windows platforms (which are case insensitive), to find all accounts that start with "adm", regardless of case, you must enter [Aa][Dd][Mm].*.
