If you've made a change to your Active Directory configuration, and need to ensure the changes are reflected on the Smoothwall Filter and Firewall but there isn't a Sync button on the Smoothwall administration user interface, you must instruct the IDex Agent to "scrape" the Active Directory configuration, and resend all group information to the Smoothwall.
The IDex Directory connection you configure on the Directories page is a passive connection. It only receives data, therefore cannot send requests for information from Active Directory.
- Log into the domain controller that has the IDex Agent installed.
- Open Windows Explorer, and go to
- Right-click on
SendAdDataNow.exeand choose Run as administrator.
The new group information should now be available for group mapping in the Services > Authentication > Directories page, for the IDex Directory connection.
See our help topic, Mapping directory groups to local Smoothwall groups.
