It uses an Explorer-style interface for all operations, including right mouse click pop-up context menus for all objects. Management of users, groups, shares, domains, computers, services, devices, events, files, printers and print jobs, sessions, open files, disk space, user rights, messaging, exporting, job scheduling, processes, and printing are all supported.

    Very unstable. It doesn't scan netbios any better than a freeware scanner in a workgroup without Active Directory. Probably works better for domains? I at least hope it does, because there are freeware Netbios scanners that do a better job.

    I use "Ideal administration" found better Administration app.
    while Hyena was buggy at that time when I test it, (i guess ver. 4), Now gotta see "what they implement in this new ver.)

    Like the other posts, this is an excellent program. I also use it on a daily basis as a System Administrator of a large network. The program does almost everything that you need in a nice, and easy to use interface. I would like to se a couple options added that would be nice for my paticular enviroment. It would be nice if the user could Copy/Paste Group Membership information to the Windows Clipboard, for use in other windows programs. ie. from the properties of a User object, highlight all Groups that this use is a member of, the be able to copy and paste this information to other Windows Programs. Also allowing this same type of behaviour for Exchange Distro. Membership would be great as well.

    It's a shame it can't get more than 5 *****, A MUST Have addition for the software toolbox of any Windows System Administrator!!!!

    It does pretty much everything!

    One feature I would like to see is the abiitly to manage an Exchange organisation (or at least to view it)

    To take it a stage further, drop down boxes for some of the user details to limit choices (user definable). Would make it best thing ever... but it does the job for me
