AD Administrative Center

The new AD Administrative Center (see Figure C.8) provides a way for administrators to perform regular management tasks via an easy-to-use interface built on top of PowerShell. This means that as an administrator you can use the graphical user interface (GUI) to perform a task and the GUI then makes a call to a PowerShell script or cmdlet to complete the requested task. Most of the functions you perform in AD Users and Computers (ADUC) can be performed in the new AD Administrative Center-rich GUI. Whether you are a new or seasoned Windows administrator, you will want to check out the new AD Admin Center.

ADAC provides enhanced features such as the ability to manage multiple domains from a single pane of glass, a comprehensive search, and an integrated password reset tool. You may choose to use this tool over ADUC for many of the common day-to-day administration tasks for AD, such as resetting passwords or creating new user accounts. ADAC is accessed from the Administrative Tools folder in the Start Menu.
