Analyzing Azure Active Directory

Once you install the Active Administrator® Azure® Active Directory® Connect Health Monitoring Agent on a computer where Microsoft® Azure Active Directory Connect is installed, you can view a summary of the output of the Synchronization Service Manager and manage the Azure Active Directory Connect Scheduler; view the output of the Synchronization Service Manager; view warnings, errors, and events that occurred over the last 24 hours; and view a list of the installed connectors, and properties, partitions, and run profiles of selected connectors.

Installing the Azure Active Directory Connect Health Monitoring Agent

You must install the Active Administrator® Azure® Active Directory® Connect Health Monitoring Agent on each computer that you want to monitor. Microsoft® Azure Active Directory Connect must also be installed on that computer.

1
Locate C:\Program Files\Quest\ActiveAdministrator\Server\SLAgent\AADCAgent.

5
Right-click Setup.exe, and select Run as Administrator.
Select Start | Command Prompt (Admin), navigate to the folder where you copied the files, type Setup, and press Enter.
6
Type Y and press Enter to install the Active Administrator Azure Active Directory Connect Health Monitoring Agent.
If you press Enter without entering a name, the default is the computer name, which displays next to Agent name in the prompt.
To use another database, type N, and press Enter.
After the installation is complete, use the Agents tab or Setup.exe from the command line to manage the Active Administrator Azure Active Directory Connect Health Monitoring Agent. See Managing the Azure Active Directory Connect Health Monitoring Agent.
