Chromebook configuration steps

A Chromebook is Google's low-cost alternative to traditional laptops. Unlike Windows, Mac, and Linux machines, a Chromebook runs on the Chrome OS. Users can login to their Chromebook using their AD domain credentials, if their device has been integrated with the respective AD domain.

ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus allows Chromebook users to reset their passwords or unlock their accounts without help desk assistance, right from their logon screens. IT admins need to follow these steps to integrate ADSelfService Plus with Chromebook, and enable self-service password management for Chromebook users.
