a) Under Name, type customer name-AD (ex: Coet-AD)

b) Domain = domain name

c) Server 1: Public IP or Public FQDN

d) Base DN is easiest found using dsquery on the customer server. Make sure you use a user account in the same organizational unit as all the other user accounts. Leave out CN=username (in this example superman), so the entry would be OU=SBSUsers,OU=Users,OU=MyBusiness,DC=cc,DC=local

  2. Go to SO Level (for RMTT users)/Customer Level for individual clients and then click User Accounts
  3. Select All, then click Unlock
  4. Users should be able to login again
