Active Roles 7.4.1 - Diagnostic Tools Release Notes

Directory Changes Monitor

Directory Changes Monitor is a command-line tool that enables you to create a log of changes that occur in a particular Active Directory domain within a given time frame. The statistic of changes may be helpful in diagnosing error conditions that are due to a large number of search results Active Roles receives from the DirSync control when polling for changes in Active Directory.

The log file created by this tool provides statistic information about the number of detected changes and, for each of the detected changes, includes a record identifying:

  • The time that the change occurred
  • The changed object
  • The type of the change
  • The type of the changed object
  • The object’s attributes that were changed

Known Issues

There are no issues known to exist at the time of release.
