I work in a large organisation that uses one domain in AD and about 60+ OUs, one for each company.
I’ve added my company as the base DN for our IM, but would like to add some outside people (not domain users) and some people from elsewhere in the domain the the system.
Is there anyway to do this? Ideally it’d be nice to create standard database users for these people but it doesn’t seem to be possible whilst using AD.
The other option is to slacken the base DN and use a filter, and then add domain accounts for the external users, but this isn’t ideal.
Any thoughts on this predicament? Any assistance much appreciated!
