Microsoft Active Directory Opspack

Active Directory (AD) is a Windows OS directory service that facilitates working with interconnected, complex and different network resources in a unified manner.

Active Directory was initially released with Windows 2000 Server and revised with additional features in Windows Server 2008. Active Directory provides a common interface for organizing and maintaining information related to resources connected to a variety of network directories. The directories may be systems-based (like Windows OS), application-specific, or network resources (ex. printers). Active Directory serves as a single data store for quick data access to all users and controls access to users based on the directory's security policy.

This won’t have any negative impact on your system when you manually install this opspack or are upgrading to Opsview Monitor 6.0 (November 2018 release). You will see both sets of Host Templates in the system. Nevertheless, to avoid confusion, we recommend removing the templates carried over from a previous Opsview Monitor version.
