Active Directory Domain Services Reference

Topic Last Modified: 2009-01-23

This reference section includes the following information:

  • The global settings and objects, as well as universal service and administration groups, that are created during forest preparation.
  • The access control entries (ACEs) that are created on the domain root and built-in containers during domain preparation.
  • The WMI properties that can be used in scripts to configure new Office Communications Server users, if your organization chooses to create scripts rather than use the snap-ins.
  • Schema extensions created during schema preparation.
    The Active Directory schema contains formal definitions of every object class that can be created in an Active Directory forest. The schema also contains formal definitions of every attribute that can exist on an Active Directory object. The Active Directory global catalog contains replicas of all the objects for the forest, along with a subset of the attributes for each object. This section describes the classes and attributes that Office Communications Server adds to the Active Directory schema.
