Active Directory Diagram

Active Directory (AD) is a directory management service introduced by Microsoft Corporation for Windows domain networks. This service uses the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and provides quick access to the included information about large structural units such as domains, organizational units, sites, and also about simple objects, such as users names with detailed information about them - contacts information, access rights, etc. Active Directory Diagram is a representation of the network structure in clear graphical format. It is a scheme of correlations of service components with preset degree of detailed elaboration. Active Directory Diagram makes the work of network administrators with Active Directory network structure more easy and convenient, allows plan and service the network quicker and more qualitatively. The help of ConceptDraw PRO software extended with Active Directory Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area is indispensable for easily and quickly creation the highly detailed Active Directory Diagrams.

This example was drawn on the base of the Figure 2 illustrating the "Active Directory FAQ" from the website "Information Management Systems & Services" (IMSS) of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) campus. [imss.caltech.edu/node/412]
"By using the Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS) server role, you can create a scalable, secure, and manageable infrastructure for user and resource management, and you can provide support for directory-enabled applications, such as Microsoft® Exchange Server. ...
AD DS provides a distributed database that stores and manages information about network resources and application-specific data from directory-enabled applications. Administrators can use AD DS to organize elements of a network, such as users, computers, and other devices, into a hierarchical containment structure. The hierarchical containment structure includes the Active Directory forest, domains in the forest, and organizational units (OUs) in each domain. A server that is running AD DS is called a domain controller." [technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9a5cba91-7153-4265-adda-c70df2321982]

The vector stencils library "Active Directory Sites and Services" contains 12 symbol icons of Active Directory Sites and Services design elements for drawing high-level network topology plan diagrams.
"Active Directory® Sites and Services is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that you can use to administer the replication of directory data among all sites in an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) forest. This snap-in also provides a view of the service-specific objects that are published in AD DS. ...
Administrators who are responsible for forest-wide service administration can use Active Directory Sites and Services to manage the intersite replication topology for the forest. Administrators who are responsible for application services can be delegated responsibility for the service containers into which application-specific objects are published.
When you add the Active Directory Domain Services server role to a server, Active Directory Sites and Services is added to the Administrative Tools menu." [technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730868.aspx]

Network diagrams with ConceptDraw PRO

Network diagram is effective tool for representing and description the network knots and connections between them in comprehensible graphic view, for studying and analysis them. The network administrators and engineers actively use Physical Network Diagrams and Logical Network Diagrams, which are both indispensable when developing and documenting new networks, and managing existing ones. Network diagrams let clearly represent the network configuration and structure, used protocols, addresses, and also names of network objects. Physical Network Diagrams depict the information about telecommunications data, servers, location of network equipment and number of network users. Logical Network Diagrams describe about logical network structure. It is useful to use the ready sets of network clipart, pictures and symbols for indication the network knots on a diagram, such as developed by professionals and offered in large quantity by Computer Network Diagrams solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park.

This AD diagram example was created based on the picture "AD LDS as a phone book service" from the book "Active Directory for Dummies".
"Directory services are a great way of providing information that can be fre-
quently retrieved and searched on in a hierarchical way. ... Well, there’s no reason that you can’t create a directory service that’s actually a phone book. Imagine that you need to make a searchable phone directory of your organization available on the Internet. ... This isn’t a difficult task, but it has security repercussions. If you’ve already deployed AD DS and you have the employees’ phone numbers available in that directory, it might not be a good idea to expose your AD DS environment to the Internet for security reasons. Using AD LDS is a great alternative because it can be deployed separately from AD DS and it’s designed to simply provide the information retrieval service that you need without the complications involved with Kerberos authentication and group policies." [Steve Clines and Marcia Loughry, Active Directory® For Dummies®, 2nd Edition. 2008]
