Important 
Windows Active Directory stores user information in one or more global catalogs. The global catalog lets individuals and applications find objects (users, groups, and so on) in an Active Directory domain.
In order for User Service to communicate with Active Directory in Native Mode, you must provide information about the global catalog servers in your network.
1.
Click Add, next to the Global catalog servers list. The Add Global Catalog Server page appears.
2.
Provide the IPv4 address or hostname of the global catalog server:
*
*
3.
Enter the Port that User Service should use to communicate with the global catalog (by default, 3268).
4.
Optionally, enter the Root context for User Service to use when associating user and group information with Internet requests. Note that this context is used for policy enforcement, but not for adding clients in the Forcepoint Security Manager.

Note 
5.
Select Distinguished name by components or Full distinguished name to specify how you prefer to enter the account information.
*
If you selected Distinguished name by components, enter the Display name, account Password, Account folder, and DNS domain name for the administrative account. Use the common name (cn) form of the administrative user name, and not the user ID (uid) form.
 
Note 
The Account folder field does not support values with the organizational unit (ou) tag (for example, ou=Finance). If your administrative account name contains an ou tag, enter the full distinguished name for the administrative account.
*
If you selected Full distinguished name, enter the distinguished name as a single string in the User distinguished name field (for example, cn=Admin, cn=Users, ou=InfoSystems, dc=company, dc=net), and then supply the Password for that account.
6.
Click Test Connection to verify that User Service can connect to the directory using the account information provided.
7.
Click OK to return to the Directory Services page.
8.
9.
Click Advanced Directory Settings, and then go to Advanced directory settings.
