When importing user accounts from AD groups into FileCloud Server, some AD groups that cannot be imported are still listed. 

  • These AD groups are built-in to perform tasks.
  • In the Windows Server operating system, there are several built-in accounts and security groups that are preconfigured with the appropriate rights and permissions to perform specific tasks.

FileCloud Server version 19.1 and later has been modified to stop displaying built-in AD groups that cannot be imported. 


As an administrator, you can create FileCloud user accounts by importing existing accounts from an AD group in your existing AD server.


To import users  from an AD Server:

  1. Open a browser and log on to Admin Portal.
  2. Setup AD configuration or LDAP configuration depending on your requirements.
  3. From the left navigation panel, under USERS/GROUPS, click Users.
  4. To open the Import  window, click Import.
  5. Under  Import Users from Active Directory, click  Import.
  6. Type in the AD Group Name.  A list of existing groups can also be viewed by clicking the Group List button.
  7. Click the Import  button.


You can choose to disable a user account during import if the account is also disabled in Active Directory.
See Disable a FileCloud User Account.
