I'm looking for a Mac solution to Active Directories User's And Computers tool. The only thing keeping me from dumping my PC and going full Mac is AD. Any suggestions.

What about Apache Directory Studio?
As for AD and coming away from binding Macs, you might want to start looking at NoMAD or Jamf Connect. Although macOS Catalina will have SSO/Kerberos functionality built-in, essentially what was Enterprise Connect.

@ mark.mahbir - We do use NoMAD but I was thinking in terms of the AD tool...for support. When I'm working from my Mac, I have to load a VDI of Windows to launch AD Users & Groups...to adjust user accounts. I was hoping that Apple or Mac community would have a Mac 'able' tool. I'll review Apache Directory Studio. Thx for the tip.

I don't know of a Mac version of Active Directory Users and Computers (I think that's what you're asking), but it's not uncommon to use Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac to access a domain controller or other network Windows machines with ADUC installed and manage that way.

Thanks, all. Looks like MS Remote Desktop it is.
