- Click the Register a Domain link.
- Enter information on the Domain Bind tab as described below.
Field Description Name Enter the NETBIOS name for this domain in upper case letters. For example, SALES. Domain suffix Enter the domain suffix. For example, sales.mycompany.net. Protocol AD protocol. For example, LDAP. Port Numerical port used for the AD protocol. Domain Controller IPs (Optional) By default, the system discovers domain controllers based on the Domain suffix. Optionally enter one or more IP addresses to override this default. Context Enter the AD context for this domain. For example, if the domain suffix is sales.mycompany.net, enter dc=sales,dc=mycompany,dc=net. Domain Bind Account DN Enter the distinguished name for the service account user for this domain.
