Check if the ports used by ADAudit Plus are open on the client machine to allow data exchange.
To check which ports are being used by ADAudit Plus, go to the Admin tab and choose Connection under General Settings. The corresponding port number (either HTTP or HTTPS) for ADAudit Plus can be found here.
Make sure that the ADAudit Plus service account (the ADAudit Plus service account is the AD account that fetches events from the security logs, and can be found in the Domain settings page) is a member of the Domain Admins group so that ADAudit Plus can perform the following actions:
- Install, uninstall or update the agent
- Start or stop the agent
If you do not wish to use Domain Admin credentials, you can still install the agent manually.
2.4. Disk space requirements
Ensure that there is a minimum of 2GB of free disk space.
2.5. Windows .NET Framework
The installation requires Windows .NET Framework version 4 or higher on the client machine.
By default, .NET Framework version 4 or higher is included with Windows Server 2012 or higher, as well as workstations running Windows 8 or higher. If you're running one of these operating systems, you can proceed with step 3: installing the agent.
If you're running an older version of Windows, keep in mind that .NET Framework version 4 or higher can be installed on the following operating systems: Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and Windows Server 2008 SP2.
You can check the .NET Framework version installed on a computer by opening Command Prompt, navigating to \%windir%\Microsoft.NET\FrameWork, and then going to the directory with the latest version number. Once in the directory with the latest version number, run the command .\MSBuild.exe -version.
