Released 24.12.2019

Version 7.7.1.0

Release notes

New features

  1. Added more PDS configuration PowerShell cmdlets: PDS configuration can now be fully managed from PowerShell  - no need to manage content of PDS.coinfig file directly.

  2. Client activity reporting now on Nano server: We added Client activity reporting to CSE build for Nano server

  3. CSE setup now more protects non-domain-joined machines from admin account password reset: PROTECTBUILTINADMIN action during setup now works as is only on domain joined maschine. For machines outside of workgroup, you need to add parameter FORCE=true for this action to happen. This is to minimize chance of unwanted locking of machine outside of domain

  4. Powershell module can now retrieve passwords directly as secure string via Get-AdmPwdCredential command (together with planning for automatic password reset)

Bug fixes

  1. PDS: Fixed bug with wrong keyID stored for managed domain account on immediate password reset.

  2. PDS: Fixed bug with ForestNotSupported error when manipulating supported forest configuration via PowerShell

  3. CSE: Fixed bug with flipping of desired builtin admin account state controlled by GPO

  4. CSE Setup: Fixed bug in PROTECTBUILTINADMIN that caused waiting for regular automatic change too long instead of on first GPO update after install

  5. UI: Fixed wrong window title

Version 7.7.0.0

Released: 14.6.2019

Release notes

New features

  1. Dedicated standalone PDS configuration file: PDS configuration is now stored in dedicated file PDS.config. This makes upgrades easier as this file is not removed by installer during uninstall, and any configuration changes are preserved. File AdmPwd.PDS.exe.config stores only mandatory runtime configuration.

  2. New PDS management PowerShell: New PowerShell commandlets to manage PDS configuration: supported forests, SID mappings and managed account containers. See documentation for more details

  3. Fat client: Added support for password retrieval of managed domain accounts.

  4. Enhanced support for management of remote forests: Now it’s easy to manage list of supported forests – trusted and untrusted – via new PowerShell cmdlets and explicit connection credentials.

  5. Client for Windows Nano server: Now also supports centralized client reporting.

  6. Support for Windows Server 2019: Solution fully tested and supported with Windows server 2019.

Bug fixes

  1. CSE: Fixed bug that caused GPO framework problem on 3rd GPO update when centralized client reporting was not configured.

  2. PDS: Fixed bug that caused PDS to count used licenses incorrectly.

Version 7.6.1.0

Released: 20.2.2019

Release notes

Released 31.12.2018

Version 7.6.0.0

Release notes

New features

  1. Central Reporting of client activity: Every PDS instance now has ability to collect events from managed machines and consolidate them in dedicated Event Log. Managed machines can be configured (via GPO) to send activity events to particular instance of PDS. This greatly simplifies management in larger environments as any potential issues on client side can be seen in single place.

  2. Enhanced management of supported forests: New PowerShell commandlets to manage list of supported forests by PDS, including alternate credentials to use when PDS connects to remote AD forest. Particularly useful in scenarios when PDS is expected to manage machines in AD forest that does not have established trust relationship with PDS AD forest.

  3. Management of state of built-in local admin account: Management runtime on client can be configured (via GPO) to manage state (Enabled/Disabled) of built-in admin account. This is particularly useful for organizations that use custom local admin account and wish to keep built-in admin account disabled.

  4. Enhanced support for proper handling of machine is reinstalled with reused computer account: Now solution provides clear event log message when password is reset because of reinstall of machine with reused computer account.

  5. Support for management of ARM64 based devices: Management runtime now supports ARM64 platform. Note: Installer for this platform is still experimental as WiX Toolset (that we use to build installers) did not provide complete features for ARM64 yet. Especially, installer does NOT register event instrumentation manifest and manifest needs to be registered manually post-install via wevtutil.exe im "C:\Program Files\AdmPwd\CSE\client.man" /rf:"C:\Program Files\AdmPwd\CSE\admpwd.dll". Feel free to ping us on support (at) admpwd.com if you want to get deeper with management of ARM64 based systems.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed bug that may have caused PDS service to fail when managing password of domain accounts.

  2. PDS integration library docs now published online on.
