How to configure User Awareness to see Specific Active Directory Organization Unit on SMB appliance

Assuming that we have Active Directory (Domain: SMB.COM) and we want to see queries only from specific OU (Organization Unit). Not all OUs.

In this example we want to see Queries only for HR:


  1. In the appliance WebUI, go to "User Awareness" blade ->select "AD Queries" and configure new "Authentication Server":


  2. To see only the Desired OU you need to configure "Branch".

    Select the "Use user groups from specific branch only" checkbox and type the following:


    In our Example  => Branch: OU=HR,DC=SMB,DC=COM

  3. Click Apply.

From this point forward, AD queries will be only for that OU.

You may also see that apply when you try to create a rule -> you will see only groups from that OU.

This solution has been verified for the specific scenario, described by the combination of Product, Version and Symptoms. It may not work in other scenarios.
