VirtualAD gets all relevant design information from your active directory and allows you to perform design checks and simulations on the current situation but also on planned situations (e.g. adding a new site).
Domain Administration Tool 3.20 Manage security, servers, networks and workstations. Features include combined changes on users, information on indirect group memberships, import and export of domain information, multiple form user rights, customizable overview of server properties
Description: VirtualAD (Virtual Active Directory) is a health & design checking, planning, reporting, simulation and troubleshooting tool for Windows 2000 & 2003 Active Directory infrastructures.
VirtualAD gets all relevant design information from your active directory and allows you to perform design checks and simulations on the current situation but also on planned situations (e.g. adding a new site). VirtualAD never changes your Active Directory, it uses its own database for all checks and simulations.
With VirtualAD you can create over 15 reports on the health, robustness and configuration of your Active Directory infrastructure.
Virtual AD provides the user with the ability to visualize your Active Directory design & implementation and perform multiple of design checks on the infastructure including: inter-site link anomalies, replication times between sites, IP subnet definitions and overlaps, identification of redundant links.
Plan & test Active Directory expansion scenarios in advance to determine where new sites and links could be placed, and the implications on replication durations. Simulate problems and disasters by visualizing the impact on your AD replications of a telecom link, entire site disaster or single server failure. Provide health & configuration reports on your active directory
Troubleshoot a host of operational issues by: providing the average loading of the Active Directory tasks of servers, identifying IP subnets that have not yet been defined in your Active Directory, but are in use by clients.
Identifying where the Active Directory replication is not following your link configurations.
By providing flexibility in the way this functionality is used, you can do many more complex simulations or design checks, by adding/removing sites and links for the intermediate database. This means that you can perform extensive 'what if' scenario planning to help define your IT Disaster Recover Plans.
