Taking an Active Directory Planning and Design for Windows 2003

My brain is melting….

Lots of good information though……..

I even understand this now:

To prevent conflicting updates in Windows 2000, the Active Directory performs updates to certain objects in a single-master fashion. In a single-master model, only one DC in the entire directory is allowed to process updates. This is similar to the role given to a primary domain controller (PDC) in earlier versions of Windows (such as Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0), in which the PDC is responsible for processing all updates in a given domain.

The Windows 2000 Active Directory extends the single-master model found in earlier versions of Windows to include multiple roles, and the ability to transfer roles to any domain controller (DC) in the enterprise. Because an Active Directory role is not bound to a single DC, it is referred to as a Flexible Single Master Operation (FSMO) role. Currently in Windows 2000 there are five FSMO roles:

Schema master
Domain naming master
RID master
PDC emulator
Infrastructure daemon

Oh… have a safe trip and don’t study too hard, getting too absorbed into all of those “masters” might not be good for you right now.

In Laymen’s terms, this means???? In my IT program we didn’t do an in depth study of servers so what you’re saying is foreign to me.
