The following terms are specific to this document:

Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS): A general-purpose network directory service that is an independent mode of Active Directory and that provides dedicated directory services for applications. See [MS-ADTS].

Active Directory Web Services (ADWS): Provides a Web Service interface to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) and Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instances.

authenticable principal: In AD DS, a directory object of class user or of a class derived from user. In AD LDS, a directory object of a class that statically links to the msDS-BindableObject auxiliary class. See [MS-ADTS] section 3.1.1.2.4.

child domain: A domain that is a member of a domain tree but is not the root domain of the domain tree.

directory instance: The directory service referred to by the SOAP header in the Active Directory Web Services: Custom Action Protocol custom action XML operation, which is the target of the custom action request. This directory service is assumed to be running locally on the server. This may be an Active Directorydirectory service instance, or an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service instance (one of possibly many). For more detail on the format of the SOAP header see [MS-ADDM] section 2.5.1.

endPoint: In the context of a Web service, a network target to which a SOAP message can addressed. See [WSADDR].

non-authenticable principal: A reference identifying a directory object that is not an authenticable principal object.

non-user principal: A reference identifying a directory object that is not a user object.

non-group principal: A reference identifying a directory object that is not a group object.

non-security principal: A reference identifying a directory object that is not a security principal object.

nonexistent naming context (nonexistent NC): A reference that does not identify an NC in the specified directory instance.

nonexistent principal: A reference that does not identify a security principal in the specified directory instance.

nTDSDSA object: Each domain controller in a domain has an nTDSDSA object. See [MS-ADTS] section 6.1.1.2.2.1.2.1.1.

parent domain: A domain that is part of a domain tree and has child domains is a parent of those child domains.

primary group: The group object identified by the primaryGroupID attribute ([MS-ADA3] section 2.120) of a user object ([MS-ADSC] section 2.263). The primary group's objectSid equals the user's objectSid, with its relative identifier (RID) portion replaced by the primaryGroupID value. The user is considered a member of its primary group.

snapshot store instance: A read-only copy of an Active Directory Domain Services instance or an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services instance at some point in time.

SOAP fault subcode: An element of a SOAP fault, defined in [SOAP1.2-1/2003].

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): A string of characters in a standardized format that identifies a resource on a network [RFC2396].

MAY, SHOULD, MUST, SHOULD NOT, MUST NOT: These terms (in all caps) are used as described in [RFC2119]. All statements of optional behavior use either MAY, SHOULD, or SHOULD NOT.
