- Extract Data from Active Directory
- Extract Data from ConfigMgr
This topic provides step-by-step instructions for running the stand-alone AppDNA AD and ConfigMgr Data Extraction Tool to extract data from Active Directory (AD) for loading into AppDNA.
This topic assumes that you have received the ADConfigMgrExportTool.zip package from the AppDNA administrator and that you have stored it in a suitable location in your file system.
This starts the wizard.
|Domain controller||Enter the name of the Active Directory domain or leave blank to automatically use the domain to which your machine is connected. If you want to extract data from multiple domains (for example, all of the domains that belong to a forest), you need to run through the wizard for each domain.|
|Username||Leave blank to use the credentials of the logged on Windows user, or specify a user name to use to connect to Active Directory.|
|Password||If you entered a user name, specify its password here.|
By default, when you select an OU, the wizard automatically selects any sub-OUs. To change this behavior, clear the Automatically select nested OUs check box.
The wizard then starts extracting the data and displays information that provides an indication of the progress. Depending on how much data you are extracting, this process can take a considerable amount of time (several hours, for example).
You now need to send the (.sgz) file or files containing the extracted data to the AppDNA administrator for loading into AppDNA.
