Manage Active Directory using Dameware Remote Support

Table of contents

Updated: September 14, 2017

This topic applies to Remote Support.

Use Dameware Remote Support to add, delete, and update Active Directory Objects including Organizational Units (OUs), Containers, Users, and Groups. With Dameware Remote Support, you can manage multiple Active Directory domains from one console. The benefit of using Remote Support to manage your Active Directory environment is that you do not need to log in to your Active Directory server to perform all of the functions available in the Remote Support console. If your computer is a member of the domain on which Active Directory is installed, by default, Dameware Remote Support automatically shows all Active Directory objects.

While there are many Active Directory monitoring tasks you can perform with Remote Support, this topic provides guidelines on a few of the most commonly used features.
