The Active Directory data is a distributed database of attributes and classes. The Active Directory schema includes the rules that determine the type of data that can be added or included in the database. The user class is one example of a class that is stored in the database. Some example user class attributes can include the user’s first name, last name, phone number, and so on. You can extend the Active Directory database by adding your own unique attributes and classes for specific requirements. Dell has extended the schema to include the necessary changes to support remote management authentication and authorization using Active Directory.
