Active Directory User/Group Path is an agentless, scheduled scanning target suitable for scanning Active Directory users and Active Directory user and computer groups. Active Directory User/Group Path only scans AD users and AD groups, not computer objects.
Active Directory User/Group Path scanning targets allow you to scan an unlimited number of OUs in an unlimited number of domains for users and groups and to specify a separate scanning schedule for each OU. To submit a target like this for scanning, hit the Add Scanning Target button in the following section of the web console and choose the Active Directory User/Group Path scanning type in the resulting popup: Scanning\Scanning Targets. If you have multiple scanning servers, there will be multiple configuration tabs on the Scanning Targets page, one for each server.
