Active Directory Diagram

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.

The vector stencils library "Active Directory" contains 20 symbols of Active Directory objects for drawing AD network diagrams. It helps network and system administrators to visualize Microsoft Windows Active Directory structures for network design, installation and maintainance.
"Objects.
An Active Directory structure is an arrangement of information about objects. The objects fall into two broad categories: resources (e.g., printers) and security principals (user or computer accounts and groups). Security principals are assigned unique security identifiers (SIDs).
Each object represents a single entity - whether a user, a computer, a printer, or a group - and its attributes. Certain objects can contain other objects. An object is uniquely identified by its name and has a set of attributes - the characteristics and information that the object represents - defined by a schema, which also determines the kinds of objects that can be stored in Active Directory.
The schema object lets administrators extend or modify the schema when necessary. However, because each schema object is integral to the definition of Active Directory objects, deactivating or changing these objects can fundamentally change or disrupt a deployment. Schema changes automatically propagate throughout the system. Once created, an object can only be deactivated - not deleted. Changing the schema usually requires planning. Sites are implemented as a set of well-connected subnets." [Active Directory. Wikipedia]

"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."

Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

Local Area Network (LAN) is a network which consists of computers and peripheral devices connected each other and to the local domain server, and covers a little territory or small number of buildings, such as home, school, laboratory, office, etc. LAN serves for few hundreds of users. It includes many cables and wires, and demands to design previously a Network diagram. All local area network devices can use the shared printers and disk storage. ConceptDraw PRO is a perfect network diagramming software with examples of LAN Diagrams, templates and predesigned vector objects. ConceptDraw PRO is the ideal choice for network engineers and network designers who need to draw fast and easy Local Area Network Diagrams, for IT specialists, developers and other IT professionals which need to visualize the communication schemes of LAN and visually document the LAN's physical structure and arrangement in houses, offices and other buildings. Ready-to-use vector objects from Computer Network Diagrams solution will help you design LAN diagrams in minutes. Read more
