New Active Directory MP 6.0.6452.0 released

Not sure about you... but I've been waiting for this for awhile. I had some issues with the previous AD MP and was told that it would be addressed in this one.

The new Active Directory Management pack (ver. 6.0.6452.0) has been released to the MP Catalog

It boasts a couple of improvements:

  • Discovery of Windows Server 2008 DC and Read Only DC (RODC). Including also the discovery of FSMO roles
  • Windows Server 2008 replication monitoring. Including a cool Multiple SLA workflow that can be configured
  • Forests that have 2-way transitive trusts can now be discovered and reflected in the improved topology views (Forest, Domain, Site, Site-Link, Replication Connection)
  • New essential services roll-up to accurately reflect services such as Sysvol, DFS, NetLogon, DCLocator
  • of course.. support for Windows Server 2008 32-bit and also 64-bit

I've just imported the MP and will be updating this post after a some drives down the fast lane.
