Active Directory


Before adding the StoreEasy system nodes to Active Directory domain, ensure that there is a network connectivity between each node and domain controller.

The sixth generation HPE StoreEasy 1000 Storage system network configuration must be able to communicate with the Active Directory domain controllers through one or more network interfaces using TCP/IP addresses. These addresses can be statically assigned or can be assigned by a DHCP server. If you are using static addressing, ensure that both forward and reverse DNS information (A and PTR records) are prestaged in the DNS server.

Restrictive Active Directory environments

If the StoreEasy system is placed in a restrictive Active Directory environment, it might require pre-staging Active Directory objects or certain administrative permissions. For more information, see the following Microsoft articles:
