    Whats on your list?

    Ive used Dameware a lot but honestly don't like it too much. Atleast its nice to have a central place to do things but honestly in the end i dont use it for tooo much. Oh and fack it uses a lot of resources (work computer isnt that fast either)

    I think i need to see what those GFI products are like. Time to start looking for EventsManager.

    What exactly are you trying to do with them?

    There are plenty of things such as OpenNMS, Nagios, and Zenos.

    I've used the last two quite a bit. .

    I like nagios when it works. but it's a shitty app from compatibility standpoint.

    GFi used to be good, now it's shitty.

    You should really take a look at Zenos.. It's a combo of Nagios and cacti together. It makes things start looking a lot like Netcool in the aspect of taking statistics over time and being able to alarm on those things, etc.

    Pretty cool tool.

    I'm sure it has some sort of AD capabilities. I'm not sure of everything since I don't deal with AD at all in my office.

    only supports linux servers... reduces it's usefulness in my market.

    edit: vmware doesn't count as "supports windows"
