Working with users and groups as objects

Users and groups objects are used to define pre-populated users and groups such that they can be used for monitoring and optimization.

There are two ways the Exinda Appliance can learn about user and group information:

  1. Active Directory: The Exinda Appliance can receive user and group information using the Exinda Active Directory Service, installed on Active Directory Servers.
  2. Static Users and Groups: Static users and group information can be only entered using the CLICommnad line interface "networkuser" command.

Once the appliance has learned about users and groups, you can use the users and groups pages to define which users and groups to expose as Dynamic Network Objects, for use in monitoring and optimization.
