Solved Group Active Directory not working
Having a problem with getting Group Active Directory settings to stick. Here’s what I’m seeing:
- I have a group set up with a few hosts in it. I enable Active Directory settings, put in the correct OU, etc.
- I reload the page and the settings are gone (not sure why):
- I boot up an unregistered client, register it, put in the right group and enable “Join to Domain (using default settings)”
- The host successfully registers, but the OU is missing in it’s AD settings:
Not sure what’s going on, any ideas?
I wasn’t sure if the “Host changes every cycle” setting was related, so I asked here about it. Either way, I’d like to know what that setting does.
@moses Please read this thread:
@Wayne-Workman Thanks, this post made the most sense:
Sorry that is a feature not a bug.
Currently the group assignments are not persistent. In that when you change a field for a group it basically does a set it now command on all devices that is part of the group. This is not like a persistent group that what people normally expect. Once the function goes through and updates the devices in that group it will basically erase the entry in the form. This is why you see it blank when you go back to view it.
@Wayne-Workman Is persistent group settings on the roadmap?
@moses Yes, but not for 1.3.0. George has been working on a MySQL thing to accomplish it and he’s been successful from what I understand.
2.0 will have persistent groups.
