Managing the Active Directory server
An Active Directory server is an integral part of a Windows 2000 server installation.
If an Active Directory server is automatically discovered by the eG Manager, it can be managed by the components - manage/unmanage page that appears when the Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage menu sequence is used. The screens below will guide you through this process. If an Active Directory server is not discovered automatically, then the components page can be used to manually add an Active Directory server for monitoring. In such a case, the manual management procedure can be dispensed with, as the eG Enterprise system automatically manages added components.
