Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I love SpiceWorks 4.0 beta. It is first of all FREE and second of all it can do anything that you want it to. http://www.spiceworks.com/ It does software and network monitoring. It can alert you to ANY change on the network like a user installed a new piece of software or a new user account was created on your domain controller.

It does Exchange monitoring and has extensive reporting. But wait it gets better (damn I feel like I am selling something on late night tv!) it is fully extendable via user created addons and reports.

500,000 Network administrators can’t be wrong right?

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You may want to look at Manage Engine’s product suite http://www.manageengine.com/ which is low cost and it works well. You can always look at the free software out there which are ad-based (Spiceworks www.spiceworks.com) and open-source (Groundworks http://www.groundworkopensource.com/).
