System Center Monitoring Pack for Active Directory (AD)

The Monitoring Pack for Active Directory (AD) provides both proactive and reactive monitoring of your Active Directory deployment.



The Monitoring Pack for Active Directory (AD) provides both proactive and reactive monitoring of your Active Directory deployment. It monitors events that various Active Directory components and subsystems place in the Application, System, and Service event logs. It also monitors the overall health of the Active Directory system and provides alerts for critical performance issues.

The monitoring that this monitoring pack provides includes monitoring of domain controllers and monitoring of health from the perspective of clients that use Active Directory resources. To monitor domain controllers, ADMP provides a predefined, ready-to-run set of processing rules, monitoring scripts, and reports that are designed specifically to monitor the performance and availability of domain controllers.

Because client computers in your Active Directory environment can experience connectivity and service issues even when domain controllers appear to be operating correctly, ADMP includes the Active Directory Client Management Pack, which can help you identify such issues. The Active Directory Client Management Pack monitors the services that domain controllers provide. It provides information—in addition to the information that is collected directly on the domain controllers—about whether domain controllers are available by running transactions, such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) binds and pings, against the directory service.

The March 2012 revision of the Monitoring Pack for Active Directory includes the following changes:

  • Corrected some Publisher names (for example, changed from PublisherName=KDC to PublisherName=Microsoft-Windows-Kerberos-Key-Distribution-Center)
  • Updated rules to generate Alerts and not only go to the Event Viewer
  • Removed unnecessary check for Event Source Name for all NTDS rules (for example, removed EventSourceName=”NTDS General”)
  • Corrected event parameter validation
  • Updated queries to search for correct event IDs
  • Fixed spelling errors
  • Added missing descriptions to rules
  • Fixed problems with Health Monitoring scripts
  • Removed user name checks from Userenv rules
