Managing configuration settings

The Settings menu offers many options to help you customize and manage Active Administrator®.


Setting the Active Administrator server

If you have more than one Active Administrator® server, you can switch to another server.

Select Settings | AA Server.
NOTE: If a connection point is not listed, you must type the server name in the Server box. If you do not want to use connection points, you can disable the feature. See Setting general user options.

Viewing license details

License details include the license type and expiration date. For the Active Administrator® license, you also see the number of licensed servers and users. You can remove a domain from the Active Administrator license.

Select Settings | License Dashboard.

Running an assessment report

There are two different reports you run. The Forest Report contains information about the forest, sites, domains, and domain trusts. The Replication Status Report contains information about the replication status for each domain controller, and errors that occurred during the replication process.

You can send the report by email and/or save it to a file. You also can generate the report in a report editor. To schedule the report, see Scheduling an assessment report.
