Monitor Microsoft Active Directory with OMi Management Pack




OMi Management Pack for Active Directory works with HPE Operations Manager i (OMi), enables you to monitor Microsoft Active Directory servers and the underlying infrastructure running in your environment and has many important new features. It monitors availability and performance of Active Directory Servers and includes features like monitoring of Active Directory database files, Directory Information Tree (DIT) disk space, replication, response time, Domain Name System (DNS), and Windows Event Log, Workload and resource bottlenecks.
