I have a lab environment which is part of a larger production vlan which I do not have admin credentials on AD. All my lab machines and servers are part of an MS Workgroup "WORKGROUP". I am attempting to use NETBIOS - Worgroups for adding clients between Management Server and lab test PCs, to no avail. I keep getting windows errors "The directory property cannot be found in the cache." I can search, see and select the machine from Select Computers, but I get the error when selecting the final OK. I have checked the credentials, deployment group on server and file share permissions on the client. On the management server I can get to the \\<client>\C$ from file explorer. But I cannot seem to add a client using the WORKGROUP\Computer name. I installed the client manually on a target machine using http://<Server IP Address>/managementserver/ and running the client install and FP upgrade, but it doesn't show on the management server's known computer GUI.
Is active directory a requirement for connecting management clients to Appsense Management server? If not, can someone point me to the documentation for doing it the NetBIOS / Workgroup way; I searched an cannot find anything specific for running the client and server without AD.
