ADSI Concepts

ADSI objects reflect the structure of the user directory information they represent. Microsoft's Active Directory and Novell's NDS were designed with an “object- oriented” approach in mind, so the objects have a natural, one-to-one correspondence with the structures of the directory.

For example, a network domain can “contain” many subgroups that represent corporate divisions or locations; these are further divided into subgroups or departments, possibly in many layers. Finally, there are the individual users, as shown in Figure 8.1.
