  • Hi,
    Based on my understanding of your meaning, it seems that you are looking for something ADLDS, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory service.
    AD LDS provides data storage and retrieval for directory-enabled applications, without the dependencies that are required for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). AD LDS provides directory services specifically for directory-enabled applications. AD LDS does not require or rely on AD DS domains or forests. However, in environments where AD DS exists, AD LDS can use AD DS for the authentication of Windows security principals.
