  • Hi AD LDS is an upgrade to the previous ADAM. The improvements are:

    -AD LDS auditing

  • -The Data Mining Tool
  • -Support for the Active Directory Sites and Services snap-in
  • -A dynamic list of LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) files that are available during setup of your AD LDS instance
  • -Recursive, linked-attribute queries

    As for 'tunning' please refer to the following article Administering AD LDS Replication, Sites, and Configuration Sets

    http://technet.microsoft.com/fr-fr/library/cc816770(v=ws.10).aspx

    "You can optimize the replication efficiency and reduce the administrative overhead of your network by establishing sites appropriately. The most effective number of sites depends on the physical design of your network. When you first create a new AD LDS configuration set a single, a default site (called Default-First-Site-Name) is created that represents your entire network. A single site can be very efficient for a single location network that is completely connected by high-speed bandwidth. If your network contains multiple geographic locations that communicate over low-speed, wide area network (WAN) connections, establishing multiple sites gives you more detailed control of replication behavior, and it reduces network traffic on the WAN that connects the sites."

  • Thanks so much for the info ... couple of very detailed questions .. we have a single LDSS instance on a workgroup server

    currently 12,800 users .. all in one groupo

    is there a hard limit and/or practical limit

    can this be load balance and replicated on one addl server ?

    running on VMware .. any issues

    Thanks
