Active Directory is a directory service developed by Microsoft for Windows domain networks. LogicMonitor's Active Directory monitoring package monitors critical elements of a Windows domain, alerts on changes, and, in some cases, alerts on deviation from recommended Microsoft best practice.
Note: This package includes ConfigSources (configuration file monitoring LogicModules). If the ability to monitor and alert on configuration files is not currently available in your LogicMonitor platform and you would like to learn more, reach out to your customer success manager. For more information on ConfigSources, see Creating ConfigSources.
Add your Active Directory hosts into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
If the Collector is running as a domain account with local admin privileges on the host to be monitored, it is not required that you set the following custom properties. However, if the remote host requires that credentials be specified, then the following properties must be set on the Microsoft DHCP resource within LogicMonitor.
For more information on the type of authentication required, see Credentials for Accessing Remote Windows Computers.
For more information on setting properties in LogicMonitor, see Resource and Instance Properties.
