I hope the mods won't smite me for asking this here. I've asked over at SpiceWorks, but apparently that's mostly Windows and Linux admins who have no real idea of what "elegance" is. My question: does anyone know of a tool for administering Wind

I hope the mods won't smite me for asking this here. I've asked over at SpiceWorks, but apparently that's mostly Windows and Linux admins who have no real idea of what "elegance" is.
My question: does anyone know of a tool for administering Windows/AD that can do as much (and as well) as ConsoleOne did for Netware/eDirectory? After 10+ years of using it, I've grown quite fond of the simple tree interface that C1 has, and the fact that I can do almost anything necessary in my eDirectory with it. I really miss that power with our new fire-breathing Windows Server2012 boxes. I haven't yet found anything similar for Windows, and was hoping that someone here might have a pointer, or at least tell me it's a fool's quest.
Thanks,
Dave

I never thought I'd see the day that someone wanted something
ConsoleOne-like for administering Windows/AD especially since it's been
deprecated by Novell in favour of iManager and other admin tools/interfaces.
Windows servers are managed via Microsoft Management Console (MMC) - see
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc709659.aspx for information
about MMC 3.0 available with Windows Server 2012.
Of course if you hooked your Windows Servers up to Novell eDirectory via
Domain Service for Windows you could then use Novell's management tools
to administer the AD-side of things!
HTH.
