Use the btopt.exe Tool to Manage Options

Using the btopt.exe tool, you can manage options for AD Bridge Enterprise from the command-line of a Windows administrative workstation connected to Active Directory.

You can, for example, set an option to use sequential IDs instead of hashed IDs. In addition, after you set the option to use sequential IDs, you can set the initial UID number for a cell.

The btopt.exe tool is installed on computers running AD Bridge Enterprise in the following directory:

C:\Program Files\BeyondTrust\PBIS\Enterprise

there are no other restrictions. Any numerical GID can be selected.
