4. Active Directory > Managing Active Directory

Managing Active Directory

The Active Directory Administrative Center is the console used to manage AD. You launch the console from Server Manager by clicking Tools.

ADAC has the same tiled interface as Server Manager. The interface provides a nice overview that offers useful links and help documentation on AD, as well as detailed deployment of Dynamic Access Control (covered in Chapter 5).

Figure 4-15 shows the initial ADAC screen. From here, you can reset the domain administrator’s password and perform a global search against AD. On the left side of the screen, you can select the DC you want to manage.

When you select the DC, a listing of all the AD objects, including containers and organizations units (OUs), is displayed. On the right of the screen is a menu for performing various AD-associated tasks, such as adding new objects, deleting objects, searching, and viewing properties of containers (permissions, for example).
