JOINING A DOMAIN
If you join it to a SBS 2003, 2008 or 2011 standard domain, be sure to move the WSSE to the Server OU in Group policy as it will then show up in the server group in the SBS console.
If you are setting this up to connect to a domain, first begin by building a security group in Active Directory that lists the users that you want to have access to the server.
To join the WSSE to the domain, enter the WSSE console or RDP to the server and launch the WSSE console there.
Click on Server Settings.
Now click on "Domain"
Now enter the name of the domain in the first box and browse to the security group you made in the second box.
If you cannot see the name of the security group, you have more groups than the browse function will allow.
As a workaround we can try to use the WSS Powershell to set the group.
You can use these steps to set it:
Open an Administrator command prompt on the Storage Server
Change to c:\program files\windows server\bin
Run wsspowershell.exe Then type in Set-WSSImportGroup –importgroup <groupname>
For example: set-wssimportgroup –importgroup “domain users” will import the domain users into the dashboard
If you have more than 25 users, don't use the group "domain users". And don't use domain users if you have extra users that you don't want to have these listed in the console.
To set up one user in the firm to get alerts from everyone in the network, go to the user tab and click on "User can view network health alerts.
