Going Deeper: Domain Controllers and Active Directory

A Domain Controller is a computer running Windows 2000 Server that has been configured as an Active Directory server. Each Domain Controller has configuration information about the entire Active Directory, along with a copy of all the Active Directory objects for its own Domain.

Active Directory uses multi-master replication, which means that all the Domain Controllers for a Domain are writable (updatable by a user) copies of the Domain database. You can connect to any Domain Controller and add users, reset passwords, or do other maintenance tasks to Directory information. After the changes have been made, they will be replicated automatically to all other Domain Controllers in the Domain.
