Active Directory polling
Dec 4, 2023
Use Active Directory polling if you use Active Directory; otherwise, it is recommended to use other poll types. If you use Active Directory but some of the networked devices are not listed as members, these devices cannot be discovered by Active Directory polling.
Before you start network polling, make sure that the SMB protocol is enabled. Otherwise, Kaspersky Security Center cannot discover devices in the polled network. To enable the SMB protocol, follow the instructions for your operating system.
Viewing and modifying the settings for Active Directory polling
To view and modify the settings for polling Active Directory groups:
- In the console tree, in the Device discovery folder, select the Active Directory subfolder.
Alternatively, you can proceed from the Unassigned devices folder to the Device discovery folder by clicking the Poll now button.
- Click Configure polling.
The Active Directory properties window opens. If you want, modify the settings of Active Directory group polling:
If you want to perform the poll immediately, click the Poll now button.
On the virtual Administration Server, you can view and edit the polling settings of Active Directory groups in the properties window of the distribution point, in the Device discovery section.
