@Vrushali_Gave why do you need to RDP into the AD server?
for the 2nd AD domain you can use another AD Scope activity and perform operations on it inside that 2nd Scope.

@andreioros thank for your response

Please find the below workflow image

Is it right way?

@Vrushali_Gave you’re on the right path.

Please take a look at this Active Directory workflow samples:

… and check-out this demo video Automate Microsoft Active Directory and Exchange with UiPath - YouTube

Machine 1 : My development machine is in domain i.e.

Machine 2 : I want to access the AD of the system that machine is in another domain i.e. xyz.local

Uipath stupid and robot are both on machine 1 ( domain )

Now, Can we access the AD from my development machine 1 to machine 2’s AD??

If yes, how can we access it?

If no, what will be the solution to access machine 2 AD ?

@Vrushali_Gave as long as there is network access to the AD server (you can ping the AD from machine1), you should be good - you don’t need to have the dev machine or the robot machine joined to the domain you’re connecting to.

@andreioros Thank you for your response

I don’t have more knowledge about this but could you please explain to me what kind of network you talking?

Should be the both system in same infra network ???
Are they requires internet connection??

But, in my case both the domains are on different networks and there is no internet connectivity on both machine 1 and machine 2
