  • AD Schema changes

    I am installing AD backup on dc's for a new domain.  The AD iDA makes changes to the schema during the install.  For tracking purposes, I need to document what changes it makes, but I am unable to find any info.  Does anyone have this info?

    I searched for a long time too, I'm not sure where I found it, but it sets 1 value, something like 0x00008 to a field that controls how the password field can be queried.



    Found it:

    A CommVault Forums Moderator has de-linked the original URL contained in this post to point to the current website hosting the same content in order to maintain the informative value of this posting.

    The adldaptool sets the value 0x00000008 to the searchFlags attributes of "Unicode-Pwd" and "SID-History" found under CN=Schema and Cn=Configuration. This tells Active Directory to preserve, on deletion, these two attributes.

    If it jams, force it.
    If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

    Hello.  Attached is a document that has the manual procedure that you would have to follow if you did not use the ADLDAPTool to make the necessary changes.
