Network Enumeration

Network enumeration means scanning the network for available Machines for their further processing by Remote Shutdown. Enumeration can be performed using either Active Directory or Computer Browser or both. You can also specify if the Active Directory structure should be observed during enumeration so that the network Machines are grouped in the same way as in the Active Directory database.


The current user credentials, just like the specified alternate credentials, might not give access to the Active Directory data during an automatic Network Enumeration process using Active Directory. In such case, an authentication dialog Pic 1 is displayed to input the credentials for the domain being connected to. The Remember my credentials option allows saving the provided credentials as the alternate credentials for this domain. If this option is not enabled, the provided credentials are cached for the current session only.
