There are some phenomenal tools that make the already powerful Active Directory easy to handle. I'm not sure if it's pride or budgets but most IT pros manage AD directly, on a manual basis.
This is according to Osterman Research which shows that nearly 60 percent of IT pros have no extra tools to manage AD.
Script monkeys and the real hard-core command line folks prefer direct control. And for the gifted, going manual gains my total respect. But I'm sure there are plenty that would love some third-party tools but the boss just says no.
What say you? Do you love command lines and other forms of direct control or do automation tools free you to be more strategic? Fire up your text editor and tell me what you think at [email protected]
