The directory service is a database with multiple data partitions, as well as the processes to maintain, manage, and secure the database. Domain controllers host and replicate the directory service database inside the forest. The directory service also provides
services for managing and authenticating resources in the forest. There are many different Event IDs that you might encounter from this event source. Each Event ID below should link to specific information that provides more information on that event. Some
will go to the TechNet Library and others to the TechNet Wiki. Eventually, we want all events to go to the TechNet Wiki, so that we can work on them as a community to improve the troubleshooting information.
Note: If you don't see the Event ID here that you seek, feel free to add a page, fill out as much as you can, and then link to it. We will work as a community to provide as much information as we can about troublehsooting each event.
NOTE: Most of the links above are to TechNet Library pages. A few of them link to other TechNet Wiki pages. In the future, we would like all the links to go to TechNet Wiki pages with information that is updatable by the community.
