SDNPA Meeting:

TOPIC:  ACTIVE DIRECTORY: An In Depth Look at its Structure and Process

SPEAKER: David Peterson, Product Manager, NetPro Computing, Inc.


This presentation will convince you!

Active Directory is a revolutionary new technology at the core of Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server platform. Gain an understanding of the inner workings of Active Directory, including an in-depth perspective on the structural elements and processes of the new directory, including such critical components as the forest, trees, domains, etc. NetPro has been working closely with Microsoft to develop DirectoryAnalyzer, its Active Directory health management solution. This experience uniquely positions NetPro to provide valuable insights into Active Directory, with emphasis on the following topics:

  • The key components and processes of Active Directory
  • Tips for ensuring Active Directory health
  • Potential points of failure in Active Directory

NetPro's DirectoryAnalyzer proactively monitors and troubleshoots Active Directory, so that administrators can deploy Windows 2000 Server with confidence. In this session, the presenter will show how DirectoryAnalyzer ensures the health of Active Directory and provides consistent access to business-critical resources by monitoring and troubleshooting all key components, including domains, domain controllers, sites and Active Directory-related DNS functions.
