Managing Computers

Another type of object in Active Directory is the computer object. Computer objects are used to represent domain controllers, member servers, and workstations. Computers authenticate to the domain by using the computer object just as users authenticate to the domain by using user objects. Computer accounts automatically change their password every 30 days as a background process.

Note

All computers running Windows NT, Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 must have a computer account in the domain. Computers running Microsoft Windows 95 or Microsoft Windows 98 cannot have accounts in the domain.
