AnswerGFI EndPointSecurity can monitor machines which are part of a workgroup in the following situations:
If GFI EndPointSecurity is installed on a machine which is part of a domain, both Domain users/groups, and Workgroup users/groups can be monitored. This can be done as follows:
- When adding a Domain user/group, select the domain as the source of the objects to be added
- When adding Workgroup users/groups, it is necessary to first configure the same user/group on both the GFI EndPointSecurity machine > Local users and groups, and on the Workgroup machine. It is then necessary to select the user/group from the local machine. Therefore, the Local machine needs to be specified as the location of the objects to be added.
Note: If GFI EndPointSecurity is installed on a Domain Controller machine, it will only be able to monitor Domain users and groups. Workgroup users and groups cannot be monitored with such an installation of GFI EndPointSecurity.
