This reference section includes the following information:
- Global settings and objects, as well as universal service and
administration groups that are created during forest
- Access control entries (ACEs) that are created on the domain
root and built-in containers during domain preparation.
- Active Directory schema extensions that are new or changed for
Microsoft Communications Server 2010.
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 are new or changed in Communications Server 2010.
To review all the Active Directory schema extensions for Communications Server, use a text editor, such as Notepad, to view the four schema files (ServerSchema.ldf, BackCompatSchema.ldf, ExternalSchema.ldf, and VersionSchema.ldf). These schema files are located in the \Support\schema folder on the installation media.
