Licensing and Users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Directory Sync for FOPE brought in 224 users from my structure, but I only have 80 licenses for the accounts that are active/used.

    How are the licenses assigned to accounts?

    If I disable an account on the FOPE console does it disable their AD account?

    Can I exclude accounts from being synced?

  • Hi,

    FOPE is licensed per user, since one user could have several different email addresses.

    There are 2 options to limit the user accounts that are imported:

    1. Manually import the list of active users using the Admin Center

    2. Restrict the accounts that the DST tool can see:

         a.Create a new OU in your AD infrastructure and move the inactive accounts to that OU

         b.Deny access to that OU for the account that the DST tool is running as

  • How do you restrict the DST to specific OUs?

  • Hi,

    this functionality is not implementet in DST. It uploads every element that is email enabled.

  • Hello,

    I imported a lot of users and distribution lists in FOPE using the DST tool.

    If I create an OU and deny access for the DST tool... will it remove accounts and distribution lists?

    Thank you.
