The monitoring that is provided by this management pack includes monitoring of the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instances and monitoring of health from the perspective of clients that use AD LDS resources. The AD LDS Management Pack 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 the AD LDS instances.

In this guide the term AD LDS server refers to Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 computers with the AD LDS server role installed.

An AD LDS client in your environment might experience connectivity and service issues even though your AD LDS server appears to be operating correctly. The AD LDS Client Perspective Management Pack, which is included in the Active Directory Management Pack files to download, helps to identify these issues. This management pack monitors the services that the AD LDS instances provide. It provides information in addition to the information that is collected directly for the AD LDS instances about whether they are available by running transactions, such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) binds, against the directory service.

In addition to health monitoring capabilities, this management pack provides a discovery mechanism that can help you keep track of the following information in your AD LDS environment:

  • AD LDS instances

  • Configuration sets

  • Application partitions

  • Client computers ability to access the AD LDS instances

With this management pack, information technology (IT) administrators can automate one-to-many management of users and computers, simplifying administrative tasks and reducing IT costs. Administrators can efficiently implement security settings, enforce IT policies, and minimize service outages.
