Accounts, Sites and Trusts

Active Administrator simplifies the maintenance of accounts, sites and trusts. You can easily monitor user activity, purge inactive users and computer accounts, send password reminders and more.

Review user activity

The User Activity dashboard provides a quick look into Active Directory activity. You can monitor events like created accounts, disabled users and more, and also control the duration of the activity and look at multiple domains. You can also track remote and interactive logons, logoffs and lock/unlock events.

Review and remove inactive accounts

Active Administrator provides you with an automated way of removing dormant users and computers that would otherwise bloat your Active Directory. You can report on inactive accounts, remove inactive accounts and view a history of inactive accounts.

Configure account expiration emails

Active Administrator can send daily email notifications of pending account expirations based on a user-defined threshold.

Automatically remind users to change their passwords

Password reminders reduce the administrative headache of password maintenance. Simply configure an email message to be sent when a user’s password is about to expire. 

Manage AD sites, connections and replication

Active Administrator enables you to quickly manage Active Directory sites, subnets, site links, replication, and Global Catalog servers. You can add, edit and remove connections; replicate connections and test replication; and check replication topology.  You can also add, edit and remove subnets and site links. You can generate reports on the site, server, site link, subnet and Global Catalog server level.

Manage forests, trusts and domain controllers

Active Administrator enables you to quickly manage forests, trusts and domain controllers. You can add, edit and remove forest trusts and domain controllers, and also run reports that list domain, trust and forest information. You can also easily switch to another domain controller, connect through remote desktop and reboot the domain controller.
