Active Directory Topology Diagrammer

Microsoft Technet sended today to there Dutch subscribers a newsletters. In this newsletter they always have a small section with downloadable products. Today they advised a program called “Active Directory Topology Diagrammer”.

The description of Microsoft about this program is: “The Microsoft Active Directory Topology Diagrammer reads an Active Directory configuration using ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), and then automatically generates a Visio diagram of your Active Directory and /or your Exchange 200x Server topology. The diagramms include domains, sites, servers, administrative groups, routing groups and connectors and can be changed manually in Visio if needed.”

Downloaded and installed it immediately. This is pure gold! It’s a three step procedure.
1. Fill in some information about a Global Catalog in your organization.
a. Check or uncheck some checkboxes for more or less information (optional).
2. Hit the discover button
3. After the discovery, Hit the Draw button and sit back and relax while your Active Directory and Exchange organisation will be drawn in Visio.
