3.1.1.3.1.6 Dynamic Objects

The Windows Server 2003 operating system, Windows Server 2008 operating system, Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system, Windows Server 2012 operating system, Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system, Windows Server 2016 operating system, and Windows Server operating system versions of Active Directory have support for dynamic objects, as specified in [RFC2589]. The Active Directory implementation is conformant to that RFC, except that it does not implement the dynamicSubtrees attribute used to represent which NCs support dynamic objects.

Dynamic objects are supported in all NCs except for the schema NC and the config NC. A dynamic object cannot be the parent of an object that is not dynamic, and the server will reject such a request with the error unwillingToPerform / ERROR_DS_UNWILLING_TO_PERFORM. When a dynamic object reaches the end of its time-to-live, the object is expunged from the directory by the server and does not leave behind a tombstone.
