SP2010 import and use computer names from trusted domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I received a request to create a SharePoint list containing all computers from two trusted domains.

    When I edit sync connections in CA and run query from one domain I can see a group where all computers are listed.

    How can I use that in an application to create simple list of those computers, or is there a different path to do something like that?

    It doesn't even need to be related to the user, at least for now :) ...

    thank you

  • Hi makrizma,

    Think you can export the computer list info from domain, then import the computer info to the new SharePoint list.

  • Thank you for your reply,

    My intention was to create a list that will update on scheduled syncronization and present current list of computers.

    If I understood correctly, according to your suggestion I would have to manually export the list on lets say daily basis and... for now ...that is not an option.

  • Hi

    I don't think there is out of box solution for synchronizing AD computers info to SharePoint list. You may have to write custom solution by code if you need it.

  • Hi,

    As Justin said, there is no OOB solution to sync computer information to SharePoint 2010 list.

    You need to apply custom solutions or third-party tools to achieve this requirement.
