Active Roles console (MMC Interface)

Active Roles console (MMC Interface)

The Active Roles console, also referred to as the MMC Interface, is a comprehensive administrative tool for managing Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange. It enables you to specify administrative roles and delegate control, define administrative policies and automation scripts, easily find directory objects, and perform administrative tasks.

Web Interface

Via the Web interface, intranet users with sufficient administrative rights can connect to Active Roles to perform basic administrative tasks, such as modifying user data or adding users to groups. The Web interface provides departmental and help-desk personnel with the administrative capabilities they need.

Custom Interfaces

In addition to the MMC and Web interfaces, Active Roles enables the development of custom interfaces that use the Active Roles ADSI Provider to access the features of Active Roles. Administrators familiar with scripting and programming can create custom interfaces to meet specific needs of the network administration.

Active Roles ADSI Provider

Active Roles ADSI Provider

The Active Roles ADSI Provider operates as part of Presentation Components to enable custom user interfaces and applications to access Active Directory services through Active Roles. The Active Roles ADSI Provider translates clients’ requests into DCOM calls and interacts with the Administration Service.

The Active Roles ADSI Provider allows custom scripts and applications, such as Web-based applications, to communicate with Active Directory, while taking full advantage of the security, workflow integration and reporting benefits of Active Roles. For example, using the Active Roles ADSI Provider, Web-based pages can be created such that user property modifications made by help-desk operators are restricted by the corporate rules enforced by Active Roles.
