The "X" Factors of ADManager Plus Active Directory Automation:

You will find two aspects to ADManager Plus Active Directory Automation to be very alluring. They are:

Automated & Template-Controlled User Creation/ Provisioning

There are a few aspects of ADManager Plus automated user provisioning that are worth paying attention to:

What's on offer?

Approval Workflow :
Allows you to implement a review-approve process over the automation.

Template-Controlled Provisioning:
Save all the user account configurations, such as mailbox rights, LCS/OCS properties, etc., as templates and reuse them whenever necessary.

Reactive Naming Format:
ADManager Plus allows you to define reactive naming formats, which improvises names with whatever data is provided in CSV.

What do you gain?

Offers a good measure of control over the Active Directory automation process.

You don’t have to scurry between AD and Exchange server or between AD and LCS/OCS snap-ins for property configuration. This method of user provisioning is real quick and time-saving.

In a CSV-based user provisioning operation, a naming operation can go awry (and sometimes account creation itself), if mandatory fields are missing values.

Prebuilt Actions and Scenario Automation:

Be it any kind of enterprise, there would be a set of common Active Directory actions to be performed on user and computer accounts. For example:

  • Move computer accounts from Computer container to appropriate OUs
  • Track inactive user accounts and disable them
  • Find locked-out user accounts and unlock them
  • Trace out users with soon-to-expire passwords, reset passwords for them, and force them to change passwords at next logon.

Basically, it is all about picking out a set of accounts (as needed by the situation at hand) and performing some action (move, or disable, or delete, or reset password, etc.) on them.

ADManager Plus prepackages these actions and scenarios for you and lets you automate them.
