Provides the ability to build applications that give a single point of access to multiple directories in a network environment, whether those directories are LDAP,NDS,or NTDS based directories.
Campus Active Directory is a project to integrate all campus units to be able to use various functions of Microsoft Windows 2000.
A Windows hierarchical directory service that allows network administrators to manage all network objects from a central point of administration. The Active Directory gives a network user access to allowed resources from any place on the network using a single logon process.
Oracle security and administration are integrated with Windows 2000 through Active Directory, Microsoft's directory service. Oracle uses Active Directory for enterprise-level security and schema management.
The Microsoft Windows 2000 directory service that stores information about objects on the network. Active Directory consists of a forest, domains, organizational units, containers, and objects. Different classes of objects can be represented in Active Directory including users, contact, groups, computers and printers. The Active Directory schema can be extended to add attributes to existing object classes and to create new object classes.
Active Directory is Microsoft's trademarked directory service, an integral part of the Windows 2000 architecture. Like other directory services, such as LDAP or NT Domain, Active Directory is a centralized and standardized system that automates network management of user data, security, and distributed resources, and enables inter operation with other directories. Active Directory is designed especially for distributed networking environments.
Windows 2000's answer to NDS. Novell have it so they have to have it. Microsoft and Novell used to sit in prams throwing their rattles at each other. Contains lots of data fields such as address that nobody IT administrator ever fills in on any account other than his own.
A central component of the Windows platform, Active Directory directory service provides the means to manage the identities and relationships that make up network environments.
Active Directory is a component of the Windows 2000 architecture that SPU utilizes in its campus wide systems. It allows SPU to centrally manage and share information on network resources and users while acting as the central authority for network security. It also serves to consolidate the number of directories used to run our systems.
Microsoft's directory service (which identifies the resources on a network and makes them available to users and applications). See also JMU's Active Directory information.
An advanced, hierarchical directory service. It is LDAP compliant and built on the Internet's Domain Naming System (DNS). Workgroups are given domain names, just like Web sites, and any LDAP-compliant client (Windows, Macintosh, Unix, etc.) can gain access to it.
This is a Microsoft technology based on LDAP that provides a unified view and way to manage all objects on a network. Microsoft created Active Directory as a response to Novell's NDS system that allows administrators to control large networks in a similar manner.
The Windows-based directory service. Active Directory stores information about objects on a network and makes this information available to users and network administrators
A Windows 2000 service that provides security management of users, computers, and devices
Microsoft's implementation of a network directory database. It is somewhat compatible with LDAP standards and can be queried by non-microsoft computers for directory information.
An introduction to Microsoft's Active Directory service.
A Microsoft technology, part of Active Platform, that enables applications to find, use and manage directory resources (such as user names, network printers and permissions) in a distributed computing environment. Active Directory is a component of Microsoft Windows Open Services Architecture (WOSA).
The directory service that stores information about objects on a network and makes this information available to users and network administrators. Active Directory gives network users access to permitted resources anywhere on the network using a single logon process. It provides network administrators with an intuitive, hierarchical view of the network and a single point of administration for all network objects. See also: directory partition; service
Active Directory is an implementation of LDAP directory services by Microsoft for use in Windows environments. Active Directory allows administrators to assign enterprise-wide policies, deploy programs to many computers, and apply critical updates to an entire organization. An Active Directory stores information and settings relating to an organization in a central, organized, accessible database.
