Do you know the name of a MICROSOFT tool that provides admins with an alternate to ADUC?

  • I remember playing with it a few times in 2018/ 2019 and I remember it was being promoted at Ignite as a possible replacement for ADUC.
  • It could be used to reset passwords, unlock accounts and most of the other ADUC functions
  • It is a MICROSOFT tool, not a third party tool.
  • It MAY have required an install on a server and then had Win10 clients browse to it, but I am not certain.
  • It looked much prettier than ADUC and it had some useful features for user accounts.

I just can not recall what its name is and after 1 hour of Googling I have had enough.

    YAAAAAAS.

    I had WAC installed but forgot about the extensions. Why Kubernetes is installed by default but AD is not, is a good question :)

    Thank you soooo much.

    Hi @Ian Matthews ,

    Do you mean Windows Admin Center (WAC)?
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/overview

    WAC has an Active Directory (AD) extension which means you can basically control more or less everything AD related from WAC.
