Using hidden active directory objects

Step by Step
Hidden active directory objects

Users and groups that are marked as hidden using the “Active Directory Users and Computers“-snap-in, are hidden by default in the iQ.Suite management console.

In order to be able to select these objects in the iQ.Suite management console, it is possible to add a corresponding Windows Registry Key

Tip

Before applying changes in the Registry, please create a back-up of the current Win-dows Registry.

Implement the addition in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GROUP Technologies\iQ.Suite\2.0\General
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GROUP Technolo-gies\iQ.Suite\2.0\General (for 64-Bit Systems)

Enter the DWORD „ShowHiddenMembers“, entering „1“ as the value. Now use double clicks to start up iQ.Suite console and an iQ.Suite job. The “hidden” objects can now be selected from the address list.
