    Re: active directory design tools

    What exactly are you trying to do? You can draw an AD structure in something like Visio if you want, or failing that with a pen and paper... anything that can represent a tree structure can be used. Maybe a Mind Mapping package.

      well i know i can do it on visio and other drawing tools , but what i was looking for is a tool that can help or minimize the time needed to create a design , i remember there used to be a tool called AD advisory 1.0 based on input i can get not a perfect design but a design where i can study it and edit it later on

        I would have thought that the design of an AD structure is usually based on an admin's experience and knowlege of the business requirements, rather than the output of a piece of software...

        You don't by any chance mean something that will give you a rough indication of how many DCs you need to support a certain number of users do you?
