Active Directory Cleanup Tool Dashboard

The Active Directory Cleanup Dashboard compares device object data in your Configuration Manager and Active Directory to show where devices are located. The dashboard pulls information from your ConfigMgr SQL database as well as Active Directory.

As with all Right Click Tools Security and Compliance dashboards, the displayed results are actionable with Right Click Tools (and support multi-select).

You'll find the dashboard in your Configuration Manager console, by navigating to Assets and Compliance > Recast Software > Active Directory Cleanup Tool.

Microsoft Permissions

The Active Directory Cleanup tool requires read rights to Active Directory OUs and their computer objects contained within for the specific domain. It also needs read rights to Configuration Manager Device Collections, the ability to query collection membership, and read rights to the Configuration Manager devices themselves.

If you have entered the ConfigMgr database information by entering the database information in the Configure Recast RCT application or the Recast Management server, you will need to have at least "Read Only" Access to the ConfigMgr SQL Database.
