4. Deploying Domain Controllers

Chapter 4. Deploying Domain Controllers

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) provides a distributed database and directory service that stores and manages information about the users, computers, groups, shares, printers, and other types of objects that comprise an organization’s IT infrastructure. With AD DS, you can create the following:

  • A forest that acts as the security boundary for your organization

  • One or more domains that define the scope of authority of administrators in your organization

  • A hierarchical collection of organizational units (OUs) to simplify delegation of authority for managing directory objects

  • Sites that map to the structure of your organization’s network
