Chapter 5. Install and Administer Active Directory

A directory service is a repository of information about the resources—hardware, software, and human—that are connected to a network. Users, computers, and applications throughout the network can access the repository for a variety of purposes, including user authentication, configuration data storage, and even simple white pages–style information lookups. Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) is the directory service that Microsoft first introduced in Windows 2000 Server, and Microsoft has upgraded it in each successive server operating system release, including Windows Server 2012.

This chapter covers some of the fundamental tasks that administrators perform to install and manage AD DS.
