The computers connected to our Dell Kace are configured using Active Directory. Under Inventroy Information > User, it is pulling in the user logged, username (in our case a unique ID), and domain. However, it is not brining over the users full name, which is visible for a machine not using Active Directory for authentication. 

How can we configure or script Kace to pull the user's actual name from Active Directory?

  • Good question. We would also like to pull in phone number and room, if possible.
  • Great document on KACE LDAP settings here:

    My guess is that you are not pulling that attribute during the import schedule for your domain users. Detailed instructions on how to pull various attributes from AD into Kace in the above listed document.
  • I'm guessing that the two items are not related. I am importing other data like building and phone. But those aren't showing up on the Inventory record. I'm still on 5.5.

There is not a way to do this with the default inventory.  It could be possible to use a tool such as ADfind by joeware in order to retrieve the attributes and put them in a text file that could be retrieved by a custom inventory rule.
