15_InsightForAD2.jpgUsing Winternals‘ Insight for Active Directory, administrators can monitor Active Directory LDAP calls (made from any system on the network) to identify configuration problems, review applications and services accessing Active Directory and more. Insight for Active Directory logs system activity and can save events to text files. The information Insight for Active Directory collects proves particularly helpful in confirming replication events, troubleshooting logon and client application errors and review authentication failures. Further, double-clicking an event listed within Insight for Active Directory opens that event‘s listing within Winternals‘ AD Explorer utility for additional troubleshooting support.
