The steps in this article involve editing the Windows machine registry. Using the Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to re-install Windows to correct. Barracuda Networks cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk. It is highly recommended that you create a backup of the registry before making any changes.

  1. In AD, change the existing security group name to the new desired name.
  2. On the Archive server, type regedit to open the Registry Editor.
  3. Browse to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\AOnePolService\Parameters
  4. Right-click and modify the string Group Name.
  5. In Value data: type the desired group name created in step 1 above, and then click OK.
  6. Open the Microsoft Services console (services.msc), and restart ArchiveOne Service.

The new ArchiveOne user group name is now in effect.
