Config AD includes a service which can run on any machine within the network; the service can automatically log users out after a period of inactivity and will also disable/delete GP user accounts when the AD user is deleted.
A service account is needed to run the Config AD service; this account needs to be a Domain User account and also needs to be either a Domain Admin or have the following permissions:
- Read Property and List Contents permission to the Deleted Objects container in Active Directory (non-admin users will not have these permissions by default, but they can be granted: further details available from Microsoft Support).
- Read All Properties permission to the container(s) where your users are located.
- Log on as a service permission.
- A SQL Login on the SQL Server for the domain user.
With a suitable service account, find the Fastpath.ADServiceSetup.msi in the /FPConfigAD 188.8.131.52/Config AD Service 3.3.0 folder.
