Active Directory Health Templates

The settings for the data collectors and alerts within a domain controller, a domain, a forest, or a site can be saved as a template. These templates can later be applied to other domain controllers, domains, forests, or sites to keep settings consistent between objects and to save configuration time.

Creating and Applying Active Directory Health Templates

The settings for the data collectors and alerts within a domain controller, a domain, a forest, or a site can be saved as a template. These templates can later be applied to other domain controllers, domains, forests, or sites. Templates can be applied with the data collector settings locked or unlocked.

When a template is applied to an object as locked, the data collector and alert settings for an object may only be modified by removing the applied template or by updating the template. When a template is applied to an object as unlocked, the data collector and alert settings are applied to the object but the object can be modified and may subsequently be saved as a new template. When a template is updated, only objects with the template applied as locked will be updated with the changes to that template.
