Adding endpoints using an Active Directory domain server

Endpoints can be manually imported from an Active Directory (AD) domain server. You can import and synchronize information about computer accounts with an LDAP or LDAPS service. You can add endpoints by identifying endpoints that are part of an AD domain server.

An instructional video on how to add a domain is available in the Fortinet Video Library.

You can add the entire domain or an organizational unit (OU) from the domain.
