Perform a Complete Health Check of Your or
Customer Production AD Forest
AD Health Profiler has the ability to perform a complete health check of your or customer production Active Directory Forest before implementing or proposing new solutions. All of our health check procedures (Dynamic Packs) have been designed by Microsoft MVPs. You can perform a complete Health Check of targets supported by AD Health Profiler. Currently, AD Health Profiler supports Microsoft Active Directory Forest as a Target. However, there are plans to add other targets such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Office 365 subscriptions.
Multiple Health Profiles for Multiple AD Forests
Health Profile is backbone of AD Health Profiler. When you perform a Health Check of a Target, you will create a Health Profile. Active Directory Health Profiler allows you to create multiple Health Profiles. Health Profile contains Dynamic Packs and a Target. Each Health Profile can contain same or different target, all or selected Dynamic Packs. For example, you can create a Health Profile to contain ABC.Com and another Health Profile to contain XYZ.Com Active Directory Forest.
Reports Issues Severity and Recommendations to fix the issues
AD Health Profiler not just performs health check, but also reports issue severity and provides recommendations to fix the issues. For example, when executing AD Forest Manual Connection Objects Test, AD Health Profiler checks to make sure there are no manual connection objects. If AD Health Profiler finds Manual Connection Objects, it reports "High" as issue severity. You can easily identify critical, high, medium and low issues in AD Health Profiler.
Single HTML Report
AD Health Profiler can generate an HTML Report which contains a summary of all issues reported by the AD Health Profiler, Issue description, recommendations to fix the issue and data retrieved by the Dynamic Packs.
Customize HTML Report
You can add your own comments against each issue and have them included in the Health Profile Report. Apart from adding additional comments, AD Health Profiler also provides the ability to generate report only for selected issues.
Schedule and Get Notified of Issues
AD Health Profiler ships with a Powerful Scheduler that you can use to schedule Health Profiles and get notified via email. When scheduling a Health Profile, you can set desired criteria. For example, you can schedule a Health Profile and receive email notification with Health Profile report only if critical issues occur. AD Health Profiler supports defining following attributes for criteria:
-Notify via Email if any Critical Issues
-Notify via Email if any High Issues
-Notify via Email if any Medium Issues
-Notify via Email if any Low Issues
-Notify via Email if Any Issues
-Notify via Email upon completion of Health Check
Multiple AD Forests
Perform Health Check using Alternate Credentials
AD Health Profiler allows you to add alternate credentials to perform health check of multiple AD Forests from a single computer. For example, AD Health Profiler omputer can be a standalone computer (not joined to any domain). You can add credentials and execute Health Profiles under alternate credentials. For example, you can create three Health Profiles named "HP1", "HP2" and "HP3" and then add three different AD Forests. You can execute each Health Profile under alternte credentials, which, in turn, allow you to perform health check of multiple Active Directory Forests from a Single computer!
This is quite useful for IT Consulting companies who manage multiple Active Directory Forests.
Export/Import Health Profiles for Offline Review
If you perform a health check at a customer place, you can export Health Profile and then import Health Profile at the Active Directory Health Profiler running on your computer. This allows you to view the results offline and provide your comments against each issue before generating the Health Profile Report.
Add Credentials to Manage Different Targets
AD Health Profiler allows you to add credentials. You can execute Health Profiles or Dynamic Packs under different set of credentials. For example, when executing a health profile that contains Hyper-V as a target you might want to use different set of credentials to connect to Hyper-v servers.
You may not want to execute all Dynamic Packs when you execute a Health Profile. AD Health Profiler supports enabling/disabling Dynamic Packs in a Health Profile. This allows you to prevent execution of disabled Dynamic Packs when you execute a Health Profile.
is All That You Need
Note that AD Health Profiler is just the "Execution SubSystem". AD Health Profiler performs Health Check of managed Targets by leveraging Dynamic Packs designed using PowerShell cmdlets. Currently, Active Directory Health Profiler ships with 97 Active Directory Dynamic Packs to perform a complete health check of Active Directory forests. If you have designed Dynamic Packs for other Microsoft Server Roles such as IIS or DNS, you can import Dynamic Packs in AD Health Profiler and then execute them!
Design Your Own Health Check Dynamic Pack
Do you know PowerShell? If yes, feel the power of Dynamic Pack Manager. AD Health Profiler ships with built-in Dynamic Pack Manager that you can use to design new Health Check Dynamic Packs or even modify existing Dynamic Packs that we have designed for use with AD Health Profiler.
Request new Dynamic Packs
at no Additional Cost!
No need to learn PowerShell to design a Dynamic Pack. If you are a registered user, simply request us to design a new Health Check Dynamic Pack for you at no additional cost!
Import New Dynamic Packs
Directly from Our Server
When new Dynamic Packs are available (guaranteed 2 Dynamic Packs every month) they can easily be imported from Active Directory Health Profiler console. You can check for new Dynamic Packs for a particular Target. For example, you can select Microsoft Exchange as a target and then search for new Dynamic Packs that apply to Microsoft Exchange Target.
Solution # DynamicPacks
Collect Desired Information and Maintain Systems Health
Collect Desired Information from Targets
Using DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION, you can collect the desired information from the targets managed by the Run Points. A Run Point contains a Dynamic Pack that you would like to execute against selected Targets. For example, you can create a Run Point that includes "Get GPO Info" Dynamic Pack to collect GPO information from Windows Client Computers. Similarly, you can create a Run Point that collects Active Directory GPO, Forest, Domain Controller Information from Active Directory Forests.
Report on "Any" Configuration Changes
DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION provides the ability to report on configuration changes for targets. For example, you can have DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION send you an email if Active Directory configuration changes (for example, when Domain Controller configuration changes occur). Similarly, you can configure DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION to report on Hyper-V configuration changes. Depending on the availability of Dynamic Packs, you can have DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION report on Configuration changes. Currently, DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION ships with Active Directory Dynamic Packs. You can design your own Dynamic Pack and include in the DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION.
Get Notified of Configuration Changes
DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION ships with a powerful Run Point Scheduler that you can use to schedule Run Points and get notified via email. When scheduling a Run Point, you can set desired criteria. For example, you can schedule a Run Point and receive email notification with Run Point report only if configuration changes occur. DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION supports defining following attributes for criteria:
-Notify via Email if Run Point Data does not match with Health Set Data
-Notify via Email upon completion of Run Point
Data View, TreeView, and HTML View
DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION can show you run point data in three different formats; CSV, Treeview and HTML. In Data View, you can easily find any configuration changes that might have occurred. HTML View provides you the overall status of Run Point and also show the differences. HTML View is sent you via email if any configuration changes occur in the Target managed by the Run Point.
Create Multiple Run Points
A Run Point is an execution point. A Run Point contains a Dynamic Pack and Target Instances. An example of a Run Point: You can create a Run Point which contains Get Active Directory Domain FSMO Dynamic Pack to check FSMO role holders in each domain. Similarly, you can create a Run Point to check Group Policy Status on client computers by including Get GPO Status Dynamic Pack. Once Run Point has been created, you can create a Health Set for Run Point. A Health Set will contain the data that you would like to compare with Run Point data.
