Description: NIC Configurator 2018

NIC Configurator 2018 allows you to monitor computer network adapter connection status and optimize network adapters for best performance across groups of Active Directory computers using NIC policy. You can create a policy for properties such as speed and duplex, flow control, jumbo packet, and others.

NIC Configurator monitors these properties and can automatically modify the settings to ensure they always match your NIC policies, even if your network adapter selections spread across multiple computers and NIC brands.

When a network adapter setting does not match its NIC policy setting, and auto-configure is enabled, NIC Configurator 2018 will detect this non-compliant status and modify the network adapter properties to match the settings in your NIC policy. A notification is also sent via text and e-mail which shows the non-compliant computer, network adapter, and NIC properties.
This is also displayed on the NIC Configurator 2018 Compliance Monitor screen.

NIC Configurator uses NIC policy to standardize network adapter advanced properties across hundreds or thousands of active directory computers.

 

 

 

Software Fixes & Updates

 

 

 

DATE

FIX / UPDATE

  06-06-2020


On the NIC Configurator 2018 opening dialog box, when clicking the Clients > Install menu items and then typing a name in the Computer Group edit box, no results would be returned after clicking the Find button, even though the computer group existed in Active Directory and there were computer objects listed as members of the group.

This only occurred when the computer group in Active Directory was located outside of the Users container.

This has been fixed. As of this update, NIC Configurator 2018 will find members of computer groups that are located inside or outside the Users container.
