Select to send an email immediately after every event occurs.

Setting Active Template options

Active Templates, which are used to grant specific sets of Active Directory® rights to an object, can be configured so that the rights are automatically reapplied if any of their permissions within the template are accidentally removed. Additionally, you can alert administrators automatically by email when an Active Template is repaired.

Select Configuration | Active Template Settings.
By default, Active Administrator® checks for broken Active Templates every 30 seconds and automatically repairs any broken Active Templates found. To disable automatic repair, clear the check box. You also can change the time period.
Click Save.

Setting agent installation options

The options set on this page determine the default settings that appear when you select to install an audit agent. You can change the default setting for each individual install.

Select Configuration | Agent Installation Settings.

Install and Activate

By default, the agent is activated after installation so event collection begins immediately.

Install Only

Select to install the agent without activation. You will need to activate the agent to begin collection.

In the Event Collection Limit box, type the number of days to go back when looking for events.
Click Save.
