  • 1. by Shannon King
  • 2. In IT “we” call active directory AD for short…but, all jargon aside
    By definition- AD is Microsoft’s trademarked© Directory Service.
    Delving deeper into that definition A Directory is an INDEX of files stored on a computer.
    Considering we have an index tells us there must be a Data Base, requiring an index.
  • 3. As an Administrator
    We understand someone must own all of these data file and resources.
    AD Provides a single hierarchical view from which to access and manage all of these network resources.
    However, In order to access a resource a client MUST have Permission
  • 4. What’sGranting Permission
    Active Directory has a centralized administration mechanism over the entire network that delegates authority.
    This mechanism automates network management allowing interoperation with other directories and much more.
    What’s interoperation? It refers to the ability of diverse system and organizations to work together.
  • 5. Basic Active Directory Networks
    A Network- is interconnected system of things or people.
    And in AD our Basic Active Directory Networks are:
    Organizational Units
  • 6. Domains
    An AD domain is a collection of computers that share a common set of policies, a name and a database for their members.
    A domain must have one or more servers that serve as Domain Controllers or DC’s and store the database, maintain policies and provide the authentification of logons.
    Domain Controllers store the database. It’s a Server!
  • 7. Objects, Phantoms
    As an administrator these are some cool words to have in your repertoire.
    Stale references are known a Phantoms in the AD system.
    Everything that AD tracks is considered an Object. An object is any user, system, resource, or service tracked within AD.
  • 8. LDAP’s
    Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is an important tool. It enables anyone to locate organizations, individuals and other resources such as files and devices in a network whether the public internet or on a corporate intranet.
    The LDAP’s Should not be taken lightly and should be mastered. LDAP search queries can come in very handy;-)
