I am looking to whittle down the alerts for AD and was wondering if anyone knew of a best practices guide for the most essential monitors. I believe the SCOM admin just fired up the AD Management pack and suggested we narrow it down. We have a large enterprise with about 180 DCs spread over the country and in a few other countries, so I find some of the alerts are transient causes by network issues more than AD. If anyone has a list or guide of essential monitors for AD it would give me a good start I can add to as needed. Thanks.
