AD Management

Remote Active Directory Management Tool

Monitoring, managing and reporting on every aspect of your Windows Active Directory infrastructure, and also managing remote employees with only the native tools, PowerShell scripts, etc. is complex and taxing. It can even become quite unnerving. But as an administrator, being in firm control of your Active Directory and also effectively managing remote employees will always be your prime objective, immaterial of whether you are in your office, working remotely, or working from home.

Thorns in Remote Active Directory Management

In organizations in which most of the employees work from home or remotely, administrators and IT team will have additional challenges for effectively managing remote employees such as:

  • Configuring terminal or remote access permissions to the necessary users
  • Constantly checking and revoking the remote logon permissions for inappropriate users
  • Adding more security layers to ensure only the authorized users are logging in remotely
  • Managing the logon hours of employees working from home
  • Dealing with the additional access, password, and account lockout related tickets
  • Creating and applying a separate set of policies for the remote workers
  • Monitoring remote workers' actions

When administrators also work from home or remotely, Windows Active Directory administration, management and reporting; and remote user management becomes more challenging and complex as they have to depend on Remote Active Directory administration. This can be done using:

  • A Remote Desktop connection to Active Directory Server or domain controller
  • Remote server administration tools (RSAT)

The difficulty with these options is, to use them you must have:

  • Privileges to connect to the domain controller remotely, and perform the desired operations
  • Installed the required RSA snap-ins for the operations

However, it is totally up to you either struggle with the native AD tools, Remote PowerShell, RSA tools and Remote Desktop Connections or choose the easy and convenient option of ADManager Plus to manage your Active Directory when you are away from your office. Explore this tool in detail using the free download of its trial version.

The web-based Alternative to Remote Active Directory Management

ADManager Plus' web-based AD management capability is an efficient and simple alternative to Remote Active Directory management and RSAT tools for managing remote employees. With just an internet connection and a web-browser, this tool allows you to completely manage and report on your Active Directory domains, Office 365, multiple versions of Exchange Server, and also to manage remote employees' identities and access, all from just one single console. And you can do these from absolutely anywhere and any machine without even having to install anything on the machine that you wish to use.

An example of how ADManager Plus makes things easier in a remote or work from home scenario

Let us say an organization decides to offer work from home option to some of its employees. To facilitate a smooth transition to the new working model for those employees, administrators must make a few changes to the user accounts of those employees, such as:

  • Allowing remote access
  • Modifying the logon hours, and allowing logon only from specific computers
  • Add them to groups specific to remote workers
  • Enable OWA or OMA for Exchange Mailboxes
  • and more.

With ADManager Plus though, administrators can make these changes to all relevant user accounts in bulk, in just a single action. With the help of its user modification templates, which allow you to modify multiple settings of user accounts at once, and the CSV import option, the product makes user modification a breeze.

If administrators have to rely on the Active Directory users and computers (ADUC) console, or PowerShell scripting, for remote user management or remote management of user permissions, the process would be time consuming, complex and tiresome.

Highlights of ADManager Plus

  • Bulk Active Directory Management: Provision, re-provision and de-provision Active Directory Users, Groups, Contacts and Computers in bulk.
  • Template-based management of Active Directory accounts.
  • Pre-built Active Directory reports in multiple categories like User reports, Computer Reports, Group Reports, Contact Reports, Password reports, Distribution Group reports, NTFS reports, Compliance Reports, etc. More.
  • Non-invasive Help Desk Delegation to offload excessive burden off your back and allow even the technically-naive users to perform administrative tasks.
  • Customizable Workflow to standardize the execution process for all your Active Directory tasks.
  • Active Directory Automation to completely automate crucial and repetitive tasks like User Lifecycle Management, AD Cleanup, etc.
  • On-the-fly Management of Active Directory accounts with actions like unlock, enable / disable, move, delete, etc. from any report.
  • Single-console management of AD, Office 365, and multiple versions of MS Exchange Server (Exchange 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013), and G Suite.
  • Create, modify, migrate, disable / delete mailboxes in bulk.
  • Pre-built Exchange Server specific reports like Distribution List Members, Mail-box Enabled users, Mail-enabled groups, OWA/OMA enabled or disabled users, Active Sync enabled / disabled users, etc.
  • Schedule and export multiple Active Directory and Exchange reports in any format like PDF, CSV, EXCEL, HTML, etc.

Adding a sparkle to the above is the fact that you get to accomplish all these with purely UI and mouse-clicks based actions.
