Using the built-in Windows administration tools to manage a medium to large Windows 200x network or Active Directory environment can be a challenge. Add multiple domains, hundreds or thousands of servers, workstations, and users, and before you know it, things can get out of hand. Hyena is designed to both simplify and centralize nearly all of the day-to-day management tasks, while providing new capabilities for system administration. This functionality is provided in a single, centralized, easy to use product. Used today by tens of thousands of system administrators worldwide, Hyena is the one tool that every administrator cannot afford to be without.
Hyena uses an Explorer-style interface for all operations, including right mouse click pop-up context menus for all objects. Management of users, groups (both local and global), 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. For an example of a typical enterprise-wide view in Hyena, click here.
In fact, Hyena can be used on any Windows client to manage any Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP/Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or Windows Server 2003/2008/2012 installation.
The key new feature in v11.x is the 'Active Task'. Hyena's new 'Active Task' will provide the functionality for mass importing and updating of most Active Directory attributes from a delimited text input file.
All task settings are saved in a 'task file', allowing for easy repetitive task executions, including command line and scheduling support. For Active Directory user tasks, home directory creation can be automated using Hyena's existing user home directory templates.
