Easy To Use

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.

Explorer-Style Interface

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.

Hyena's Different Management Areas And Features:

Active Task - Hyena Feature

Hyena's 'Active Task' feature automates the tedious task of mass importing and updating Active Directory, without the need for complex and error-prone Powershell scripts. 'Active Task' supports bulk/mass updating and creation of new Active Directory objects from any delimited text file, including CSV files.

Task settings and options are saved automatically, so repeated updates can be performed with minimal steps. Most directory data types are supported, including text, numeric, true/false, multi-valued, and more.

Active Editor - Hyena Feature

Hyena, our award-winning Windows system management software, now includes the 'Active Editor', a tabular-like window which lets you freely move around and modify directory information as easily as if it were in a spreadsheet. The 'Active Editor' also supports importing changes from delimited text files.

Active Directory Reporting And Management

Hyena provides extensive Active Directory (AD) reporting, with built-in tools for customizable queries, filtering, management of object properties, advanced attribute management, and many other AD administration features. Due to Hyena's ease-of-use and rich feature set, AD environments of all sizes can be managed more efficiently and quickly. 

The Active Directory Query Manager in Hyena has been extensively modified with a new GUI, and many new features to make even complex Active Directory tasks easier to manage.

Group Member Matrix

Hyena takes viewing group members to a whole new level with the Group Member Matrix: A fully customizable view capable of showing all members of one or more groups in a clear and easy to understand format.

Service Administration

Hyena can manage services on any number of computers at the same time, plus perform service control and startup changes in mass. Hyena's service administration features include:

  • Fast viewing and sorting of all service properties on any computer
  • Service control: start, stop, pause, continue, and restart
  • View service dependencies
  • Service installation on multiple computers
  • Service removal
  • Modify service properties
  • Control services on multiple computers at the same time
  • Change service startup information, including password, on multiple computers
  • Remote viewing of device drivers
  • Full support for Windows XP/200x service features, including Recovery options

Event Log Monitoring, Management And Reporting

In addition to integration with the Windows native Event Viewer and MMC, Hyena also incorporates its own more powerful event viewing mechanism for network-wide event log monitoring, management and reporting. Any server or workstation event log can be accessed in Hyena through the computer's context-menu. Hyena also supports advanced event viewing capabilities, including:

  • Viewing one or more event logs from more than one server or workstation at the same time.
  • Filtering events by date/time range, event ID, event type, category, description text, user/group, or source.
  • Full support for event log clearing and backup.

Job Scheduling Administration

All versions of Windows have built-in job scheduling systems, designed to run scheduled tasks at predetermined times. Hyena provides easy access to any scheduled job on any Windows server or workstation.

Hyena's job scheduling functions support:

  • Viewing all scheduled jobs on one or more computers at the same time.
  • Automatic detection of remote computer job scheduling interface: Windows Task Scheduler 1.0 or the newer Task Scheduler 2.0 found in Window Vista/7/8/10 and Windows Server 2008/2012/2016/2019.
  • Adding, modifying, or deleting scheduled jobs.

Printer And Print Job Management

Hyena was designed to give system administrators and help desk staff better control over printers and print jobs. Hyena can display any printer, even non-shared printer, installed on any computer or server. Additionally, Hyena can manage a printer that has been created as an Active Directory printer object in the same manner as non-AD printers created directly on a server or workstation.

Disk And File Administration

Disk and file administration, including routine file management, shared resource administration, and disk space monitoring, is perhaps the most common task performed by system administrators. Hyena excels in allowing system administrators full control over every disk and file related management task.

Reporting And Exporting

Hyena sets the standard for easy exporting and report generation for a wide spectrum of system information. Exported information can be copied to the clipboard, sent directly to Microsoft Excel, or written to a file.

Hyena's exporting options include:

  • Easy Microsoft Excel Exporting 
  • Clipboard Compatibility
  • Exporter Pro Integration

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.

Exchange Administration

Hyena has a long history of supporting Microsoft Exchange administration, going all the way back to Exchange 5.5. Today, Hyena continues this tradition by offering support for Exchange 2000 through Exchange 2019, on any client operating system up to Windows 10, and for both the x64 and x86 architectures.

WMI Inventory Reporting Tool

Hyena leverages WMI by allowing WMI "queries" to be run on one or more computers directly from its GUI interface. Hyena also allows for WMI operations to be performed on the resulting output, providing for an easy mechanism for updating information for multiple computers at the same time. Most importantly, there isn't any scripting required!
