Active Directory settings

Hexnode MDM lets you import your Active Directory into Hexnode and apply policies straight to the existing users, groups or organizational units (OUs). No hassle of adding users manually.

Start by setting up your Active Directory.

  1. Navigate to Admin > Active Directory.
  2. If you have already configured an AD, it will be displayed here. You can click open it to edit the current settings.

Let’s now add a new Active Directory

Click on the empty slot with the + sign and provide your domain details.
