  •     Quickly generate reports for meetings or to use for further research to determine problem spots.
  •     Change passwords for local administration accounts on multiple computers at once.
  •     Find out which services are running and quickly show startup information; make changes to those services on all computers at once!
  •     Go beyond the limits of Microsoft's MMC and help you manage Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows 2008, and Active Directory quickly and easily.
  •     Control popular remote control programs, including VNC, with one utility.

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.

 


In addition to supporting standard Windows system management functions, Hyena also includes extensive Active Directory integration. In fact, Hyena can be used on any Windows client to manage any Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP/Vista, or Windows Server 2003/2008 installation.
Hyena also includes full exporting capabilities and both Microsoft Access and Excel reporting and exporting options. All of these features are part of the Standard Edition of Hyena.

 


The Enterprise Edition adds support for:

 


Terminal Server user properties and session administration.
Exchange 2000/2003/2007*/2008 Server mailbox integration and properties management.
WMI integration.

*Exchange 2007: mailbox properties management only

 


Hyena's cost effective licensing policy is based on the number of administrators actually using the product, regardless of the number of end-users or servers. The 30-day evaluation copy is fully functional and free support is available both during and after the evaluation period.

Active Directory Integration

 

Hyena provides extensive Active Directory (AD) support, including directory searching and filtering, management of object properties, security auditing, customizable queries, advanced attribute management, and many other AD mixed and native-mode features.

Due to Hyena's ease-of-use, most AD environments can be managed more efficiently and quickly using Hyena's AD management functions. Hyena has numerous features that you won't find in the standard built-in Microsoft administration tools:

bullet Not every organization can upgrade all its domains all at once. Whether you are using Windows 2000, 2003, or the latest Windows 2008 R2 release, with Hyena you only need one tool, not a confusing array of different snapins.

bullet The Windows 2000/2003/2008 domain object class allows management of the directory through either the container/OU structure, or by object class: users, groups, or computers. You decide and control how you manage your organization's directory, not the tool.

All management of the display of Active Directory objects are handled entirely by optimized LDAP queries that can be fully customized.  

bullet Organizational Units (OUs) are fully supported and integrated, both for browsing OU contents, as well as for creating new users, groups, contacts, and computer objects directly into an OU. A powerful Find feature is available for any OU, allowing selectable criteria for finding and filtering AD information. OU properties are also available, including full support for management of Group Policy Object (GPO) information.

Server Management

 

Most of Hyena's features are built around server and computer administration. With Hyena's multiple domain management layout, and the capability to build custom groups of objects such as servers and printers, Hyena can easily provide access to every aspect of server administration.

bulletUser Administration - Hyena can manage remote computer users on domains as well as individual workstations. Hyena can also remotely change the password for the same account on multiple computers, or make group membership changes to multiple computers at the same time.

bulletViewing Computers - Hyena provides several different ways to view computers, whether in domains, in workgroups, or in user-defined groups. Hyena can also filter domain lists by specific computer type (for example, Terminal Servers only), and can distinguish between computers that are online vs. added to the domain computer listing. Hyena can also access computers directly by tcp/ip address only, and can also provide access to a single computer's functions, so that the entire list does not have to be retrieved. Hyena provides full management of computer objects, including creating, changing attributes, and removing from the domain list.

Hyena's computer Properties function can display a wealth of information about a remote system including installed software applications, total memory, video and BIOS information, network cards, tcp/ip and DNS information, remote time, server roles (print server, SQL Server, etc.), installed hotfixes, environment variables, and more.

User and Group Management

 

Perhaps no single administration task can take as much time as routine user and group administration, particularly in a large, complex Windows Active Directory installation. Setting up individual home directories, shares, and the security requirements can be especially time-consuming. Hyena's user management features are one of its core functions.

If your Windows 200x or Active Directory configuration makes use of home directories, Hyena has a unique solution for you: Hyena allows multiple templates to be configured that can be used to automatically create the user's home directory, optionally share it, plus configure the share and/or NTFS permissions...all automatically. This functionality is available for both standard and Terminal Server home directories.
