Active Administrator, the comprehensive Active Directory solution from ScriptLogic provides administrators the ability to establish, view and enforce delegated security throughout Active Directory management, perform comprehensive Group Policy management including Group Policy reporting and Resultant Set of Policies (RSoP) as well as powerful auditing and reporting of changes within Active Directory.
Active Directory Management involves the delegating, securing, configuring, managing and auditing of changes to Microsoft¿s implementation of LDAP directory services for use in Windows environments. The main purpose of Active Directory is to provide central authentication and authorization services. Active Directory has native tools for basic administration, but, lack enterprise-class management capabilities that give administrators the ability to view, audit and report on the ever-changing state of their Active Directory infrastructure.
Self-Healing Active Templates
Offline Group Policy Repository
Should permissions assigned with Active Templates be broken, missing permissions are automatically recreated, enforcing your security model. Emails optionally alert administrators of the change.
Administrators can now edit Group Policies offline from Active Directory, ensuring no adverse affects from Group Policy changes. Active Administrator's RSoP functionality can be run against GPOs stored in the offline repository to validate settings, completing the GPO management cycle before the policies are ever published to the live Active Directory.
Object-Level Backup and Restore
Performing Authoritative Restores on Domain Controllers in Directory Services Restore Mode is now a thing of the past! Active Administrator can backup and restore your entire Active Directory or any combination of objects, giving administrators easy access to what was once a daunting or impossible task.
