Monitoring Active directory

I would like to start monitoring our active directory. Can anyone tell me the most critical events you would check for.

There are some for FRS that you should look out for  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727056.aspx

...but really use tools like dcdiag and repadmin regularly to also monitor health, Brian has a good entry on some of those tools with their switches

If you are on 2008 you can use the best practice analyzer for AD and DNS also.

Thanks

Mike

That rather depends on what you mean by 'monitoring' and what events are important to you

For repadmin is a good place to start to ensure proper replication

If you actually mean 'auditing' then see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc773209(WS.10).aspx
