Which is you most important system?
Many organization would answer Active Directory. A lot of applications and systems are depending on Active Directory, for example Exchange. Most of the regular issues within Active Directory can be handle if a administrator get notice early. AD management pack monitors all core components of AD, client services, replication and gives you a good overview of your directory service health.
