Finding Organizational Units

ProcedureTo find organizational units (LDAP services only)

  1. Access the Administration Server and choose the Users and Groups tab.

  2. Click Manage Organizational Units.

  3. Type the name of the unit you want to find in the Find organizational unit field. You can enter any of the following in the search field:

    • A name. Enter a full name or a partial name. All entries that equally match the search string will be returned. If no such entries are found, all entries that contain the search string will be found. If no such entries are found, any entries that sounds like the search string are found.

      • An asterisk (*) to see all of the groups currently residing in your directory. You can achieve this same result by simply leaving the field blank.

      • Any LDAP search filter. Any string that contains an equal sign (=) is considered to be a search filter.

        As an alternative, use the drop-down menus in the Find all units whose field to narrow the results of your search.

  4. In the Look within field, select the organizational unit under which you want to search for entries.

    The default is the root point of the directory.

  5. In the Format field, choose either On-Screen or Printer.

  6. Click Find.

    All the organizational units matching your search criteria are displayed.

  7. In the resulting table, click the name of the organizational unit that you want to find.

The “Find all units whose” Field

For LDAP services, the “Find all units whose” field allows you to build a custom search filter. Use this field to narrow down the search results that are otherwise returned by Find organizational unit.

To display all of the group entries contained in the Look within directory, enter either an asterisk (*) or simply leave this text field blank.
