Publishing installation information

DirectManage Audit publishes installation information to a service connection point (SCP) object in Active Directory so that audited computers and collectors can look up the information. If the published locations for multiple SCPs in the same installation are not the same, or if collectors cannot read from at least one of the published locations, the collectors are unable to determine which audit store is the best match for the sites and subnets, and so they do not attempt to connect to an audit store.

Permission to publish to Active Directory

Only administrators who have been delegated permission to modify various attributes of the installation can publish those attributes to Active Directory.

If you do not have Active Directory permission to modify the installation, the updates are kept in the audit management database, and a message is issued to notify you that the installation information could not be updated in Active Directory.

Synchronizing installation information

If you have an Active Directory account with permission to publish information about the installation, you can update the service connection point.

To publish the service connection point for an installation:

  1. Open Audit Manager.
  2. Select the installation name, right-click, then click Properties.
  3. Click the Publication tab, then click Synchronize to publish the information.

    In a multi-forest or DMZ environment, this tab lists multiple Active Directory locations to which to publish.

  4. Click OK to close the installation properties.
