Manage Work in AD Bridge Cells

You can use the following tools to manage your AD Bridge cells:

  • Active Directory Users and Computers: An AD Bridge Cell Settings tab is added to the dialog box of the following objects in the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in:
    • Domain
    • Users
    • Groups
    • Organizational Units
  • Cell Manager: Cell Manager is an AD Bridge Enterprise MMC snap-in for managing your AD Bridge cells. Cell Manager is installed when you install the BeyondTrust Management Console.

The AD Bridge Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in can work without cells. The plug-in can manage the RFC2307 attributes on users and groups without using a cell. In this case, a default cell is assumed. The AD Bridge Cell Settings tab will display (Default (Assumed)).

Ensure the account you use to manage AD Bridge cell properties is a member of the Domain Admins group or Enterprise Admins group. The account needs privileges to create and change objects and child objects in Active Directory.
