This is a tool that helps create reports for MS Active Directory.
Active Directory Reports enables IT organizations to extract vital data from Active Directory. Right out of the box, this tool will be able to provide some 450 types of reports. Some of these include reports for OU, security reports, reports for groups, NTFS related reports, reports for passwords, user logon reports, GPO reports, reports on account lockout policy and reports for Last Logon, etc. This tool helps provide a simple tool whereas the native reporting tool of Microsoft could be quite complex to handle. The reports extracted could help you with audits like the SOX, PCI and HIPAA, etc. You are able to schedule reports and get them forwarded to a given email address. Based on the reports several bulk operations on users/user accounts are possible. These include delete, move, disable, enable and reset. Restoration in bulk also is possible.
Domain controllers to be used as default and the domain controllers not to be used can be specified. Searching of an Active Directory element is possible quickly and accurately. Printing functionality is also available. Customizing reports through add/remove columns is allowed. Users can generate the reports based on user-defined custom LDAP query. Report generation can also be limited to OU in a domain making it easy to administer based on an OU. A scripting method is available to make report generation automatic through this powershell scripts. All of these reports could be exported to PDF, CSV and Excel formats. This is a very good tool that could make the AD administration headaches easier for an IT department.
