To add an AD account for Windows manually, you need to create a local account for the directory server. This local account should then be added to the Windows Server asset as an AD account.

Procedure:

  1. Go to Configuration → AD & Directory Store → Add AD & Directory Store.
  2. Fill in the details.
  3. Click on Save.
  4. Go to Manage → Asset Management → Add New assets.
  5. Asset Category → Directory Server,  Asset Type → Windows Active Directory.
  6. Fill in the details.
  7. Click on Save.
  8. Create an account with Account Type → Local (This account should be an AD account on that directory store). Click on Save.
  9. Map the account to an account group. Go to Accounts → Click on the action button of the target account → Manage Linked Groups → Choose an account group.
  10. On the Windows Server Asset, create an account with Account Type → AD Account.
  11. Click on  Save.
  12. Map the account to an account group. Go to Accounts → Click on the action button of the target account → Manage Linked Groups → Choose an account group.


The Windows Server asset on which the AD account is to be added, should be already present in the active directory.
