  • 1. "In Windows Server 2012 (64bit) standard"

    You will obtain similar data for Datacenter.

    2. "How many devices or users are available in one Arcive Directory domain?"

    What do you mean? Simple answer is: Number depends on what you insert into AD.

    3. "What is the packet size of authentication, packet format and authentication flow of packet when a user try to authenticating to the AD domain server?"

    Use network monitor to get this information. Wireshark will give you answers for your questions.

    If programming is your aim, then start with a little old but useful book:

    Gil Kirkpatrick: Active Directory Programming

  • Is there any considerations to make a big single domain(if users are over 100,000)?

    For example, a single domain has 100,000 users and those users log in & out frequently.
