What is involved in planning out and creating the schema for a new AD domain?
Active Directory comes with a default schema when it is initially installed. Some applications such as Microsoft Exchange need to add additional objects or attributes to the schema; this is usually done by the application installer itself, or else the vendor will provide you with an LDIFDE file containing the necessary schema changes so that you can test, approve and deploy the changes on your own timeline. For more detailed information on the Active Directory schema, refer to the Schema Technical Reference available freely online.
