  • thanks a lot great...
  • Do you have Authentication set up to use your AD?

Answer Chosen by the Author


By default, this is from the last logged on user.....

not from active directory.

Of course, you could make it from AD if you wanted

by creating a custom inventory rule......

  • Thanks akmagnum,

    can you please give me simple example how to fetch from AD, CIR rule pls

    any idea how does it fetch these details?
    Full name and Domain, we use LN LDAP

    User Logged: KACE\ALEX
    User Full name: ALEX M
    User Name: Alexm
    User Domain: KACE
    • The info you posted seems like it's coming from the inventoried computer, not any AD source. There needs to be some type of mapping between the "logged user" detail in inventory and the KACE users in Settings > Users. In our environment, Windows users log in to the domain so what links user records to computers is their network username
  • yes we have both AD and lotus notes LDAP
    • How do you import and/or authenticate users? (I.E. What are you settings in Settings > User Authentication and do you have any scheduled imports?)
