Using the new Microsoft OMS to monitor Active Directory Health from Azure

Microsoft Operations Management Suite, which runs in Azure, can check the health of on-premises Active Directory, including replication health.

Why is it so important to check AD replication health? Well, if you are responsible for managing Active Directory then you know how easy it is for AD to become unhealthy, and you also know how problematic it can be to restore health. For example, a power outage that results in an Active Directory server going offline for longer than tombstone life of 180 days can cause ‘lingering objects’ to have to be removed.

So the best practice is to use monitoring tools to make sure AD remains healthy, so that you don’t have to spend long hours repairing AD.
