Omconfig Preferences Dirservice

Use the omconfig preferences dirservice command to configure the Active Directory service. The <productname>oem.ini file is modified to reflect these changes. If the "adproductname" is not present in the <productname>oem.ini file then a <computername>-<computername> refers to the name of the computer running Server Administrator and <productname> refers to the name of the product defined in omprv32.ini. For Server Administrator, the product name is "omsa".

Therefore, for a computer named "myOmsa" running Server Administrator, the default name is "myOmsa–omsa". This is the name of Server Administrator defined in Active Directory by using the snap-in tool. This name must match the name for the application object in Active Directory in order to find user privileges.

  • NOTE: This command is applicable only on systems running the Windows operating system.

The following table displays the valid parameters for the command:
