Splunk Enterprise

Monitor Active Directory

New Member

Hello,

We are testing splunk light on a linux Ubuntu 14.04 machine. I was curious if you can monitor Active Directory with Splunk light or is that an enterprise feature?

Thanks

Yes you can monitor AD with SL. The Windows add-on can help with that.

Thanks for the response but i looked at the documentation for the add-on and it looks like it will only monitor certain information, nothing about AD.

I also found this document on how to configure it from the command line but our version of splunk doesn't have a admon.conf file.
