When using the 32 bit Account and Resource Management , or Delegation and Configuration Console; also know as the 32 bit console there is no ability to search for any object type.


The D&C console must be used to change the Administration Server options. To make this change use the following steps:
  1. Logon to any Windows OS hosting the D&C console as a DRA Admin with DRA Administration Powers
  2. Connect the console to the Primary DRA Server
  3. Expand the Tree under Delegation and Configuration
  4. From the Right Click Menu on Configuration section choose the Update Administration Server Options
  5. Once in the Administration Server Options window navigate to the Client Options link
  6. From the Client Options section put a check box in the 'Allow users to search on all objects'
  7. Click OK and Apply to save the choices

Additional Information

Enabling the ability to search on any object type should be done with caution. When a search is done against all object types, there a individual search queries run for every possible object type. In some very large enviornments this type of searching could have an impact on DRA Server performance.
