Software deployment by active directory group

(imported topic written by yosia91)

Hello,

i am trying to deploy software to specific active directory group,

when i choose under users tab, the specific domain group, it ask me also to target computers,

and when i target for example, all computers, it does deploy it to everybody and not to a specific users from the group.

Does anyone issued this kind of action, or anyone might help me with that?

Thanks

Yosi

Hi Yosi,

If you choose the domain group and target by computers, the resulting action should only apply to the computers targeted that have a user logged in of the group you selected.

I will need to double-check, but I believe that to properly constrain by users, you need to have 7.0 agents and be using efficient mime: http://support.bigfix.com/cgi-bin/kbdirect.pl?id=420

Hey Ben,

i did not enabled efficientMime, but i did tested it with custom action,

and when i did that, it deployed the custom action (Blank Action) to all the targeted computer and not just to the computers which the users from the domain group were logged in.

Should i enable the efficient settings you suggested?

Thanks

Hi Yosi,

Yes. This would be a good idea (as long as your agents are greater than 7.0).
