- Load Configuration Manager data
- Load Active Directory data
- Load Active Directory and Configuration Manager data indirectly
This opens the Load AD & ConfigMgr Data wizard. By default, the wizard opens on the Load Type step. However if you have already opened the wizard since you last logged on to AppDNA, the wizard reopens where you previously left off. If necessary, click Previous to return to the Load Type step.
|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.|
This step only appears the first time you use the wizard to do a direct load of Active Directory data. If you subsequently need to change the details, click Previous to return to the Load Type step. Then choose from the menus and change the details in Active Directory settings, before continuing.
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.
AppDNA displays information that provides an indication of the progress. Depending on the amount of data involved, this process can take a considerable amount of time (several hours, for example). During this time, it is safe to perform other tasks within AppDNA. However, do not exit AppDNA, or turn off your computer, or the AppDNA server computer, until the operation has completed.
If you want to load data from another domain, repeat the above steps for the next domain.
