Latest News on development of Active Directory Health Profiler and Dynamic Packs
Launching DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION and AD Site Explorer
We are in the process of releasing DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION and AD Site Explorer. DynamicPacks ONE-ACTION can report "any" configuration changes in your production environment. AD Site Explorer is designed to troubleshoot AD Replication issues in a large Active Directory Forest environment. AD Site Explorer is similar to Microsoft's ADREPL Status tool, but it provides features that many of the AD Admins have been missing in the current version of ADREPL Status tool.
Both Tools have been scheduled to release in Q1 of 2017.
