ADO++ Active Directory - Exchange - Skype for Business User Management

Introduction

ADO++ allows administrators to manage Active Directory objects and their Exchange and Skype for Business properties, as this has been possible with the ADuC and the Exchange Extensions formerly for Exchange 2003. ADO++ covers all important tasks for user management of Active Directory objects and their Exchange and Skype for Business attributes. No Powershell knowledge is needed to do this. ADO++ supports Exchange 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, Skype for Business and Lync 2013, 2010.

ADO++ displays the Active Directory objects in a structured LDAP directory tree view or in a flat browser view (similar to the Global Address List in Outlook).

ADO++ offers different views on your Active Directory:

  • LDAP treeview of the structure known from the ADuC or other LDAP Browsers
  • List view similar to the Outlook GAL with all objects
  • All Users list view
  • All groups list view
  • All Contacts list view

Between these views, the focus can be changed with a single mouse click. ADO++ can be used to process users, groups, contacts, dynamic distribution lists, computer objects and organizational units. In the browser windows, context menus are available and offer meaningful actions on the selected objects. Additionally, bulk changes can be done on selected objects.

Selecting the Active Directory entry points:

In ADO++, the entry points for viewing and managing Active Directory objects can be set in the domain context. This specification is different for objects to be managed and objects to be selected (e.g. group memberships).

The specific AD container objects Computers, Users and Builtin can be hidden separately from the treeview.

Searching Objects in the Active Directory
