Updating the Cayosoft Suspend Policy in Cayosoft Administrator 4.x
If you have created a new Suspend Policy in ADUC (Active Directory Users and Computers) with the settings described above - you will need to specify the New Suspend Policy in Cayosoft Administrator. There are four possible places the Cayosoft Suspend Policy is referenced in Cayosoft Administrator.
- If you have configured Suspend Rules such as AD Users | Process Scheduled Suspends
Console > Rules > Folders > (update all rules that support the Suspend User Policy)
- If you do not have custom Administrative Units in Web Portal modify:
Console > Configuration > Active Directory > Cayosoft Suspend Policies
- If you have custom Administrative Units in the Web Portal and have different Suspend policies for these Administrative Units modify:
Configuration > Web Interface > Web Queries > Active Directory (or other Admin Units) > AD Users
- Obsolete - If you have copied the Suspend Command:
Configuration > Web Interface > Web Actions > Suspend User
Copying the Suspend command to create custom suspend policies for different groups is no longer necessary. This value should be set to Use (Web Query user suspend policy) and the policy should be referenced from the Query.
