    Configuring domain controllers

    Automatic process

    Check whether the configured domain controller is a primary domain controller (PDC) using the following steps.

    • Log in to any computer with Active Directory Users and Computers.
    • Go to Start > Windows Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers.
    • Right-click on the domain and select Operations Masters.
    • In the operations master window that opens, click the PDC tab at the top.
    • Under Operations master is the name of the server configured as the PDC.
    • Click Close.
    • Open ADAudit Plus.
    • Click Domain Settings in the top right corner.
    • Under Available Domain Controllers, ensure that the PDC has been configured.
    • If not, Select +Add Domain Controllers, and choose one.

      Note: If ADAudit Plus is unable to discover your domain controller, you can manually type it in.

    • Click Save.

    Configuring  domain controllers


    • Ensure that the share path \\"machine_name"\sysvol is accessible from the machine that has ADAudit Plus installed on it.
    • To perform GPO setting change auditing, you only need to configure the PDC. GPO management auditing, on the other hand, requires configuring all the domain controllers that have been licensed.
