Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

want i am finding it that you have to open the INF files with the "mircosoft secirty and analisys " mmc snap in

there is also a way to get LSA to have additital settings adding the evoasfl.dll to the path at

HKLM......CC set\LSA\notifiaction packages

more soon!!!

I believe the tool that you are looking for is called Retina. It is a DoD approved method of scanning your network for security vulnerabilities. It will also break down each vulnerability into a STIG catagory (CAT I, CAT II, etc...)

This tool is very useful if you are trying to attain DIACAP/DITSCAP certification.

At this time, even now, there are no scanning tools available for Server 2008 from DISA. The Gold Disk tool was to be cut off in 2010, yet today (2011) they still release updates... but never had a scanning tool for Server 2008. They do have STIGs, dont get me wrong, but if they added it to the Gold Disk utility, then that would be a whole lot of work for them I'm guessing. Its last supported Microsoft Windows operating systems were Microsoft Windows XP (and they still support it), and Server 2003. Note, this is for Department Of Defense users; of course access to the FOUO / https sites will be blocked as it requires you to come in from a .mil domain, and the FOUO docs/stigs require CAC/credentials. THis is for highly secure environments where security is HIGHLY factored in, not for your daily/lab/commercial use vulnerability tools.

I failed to mention Server 2008 R2 is not supported; Server 2008 is.on the Gold Disk."Windows Server 2008 R2 is not supported by Gold Disk at this time."
