4 Protocol Examples
The Active Directory Technical Specification (this document) does not specify a protocol, but rather a state model and a set of behaviors that must be followed such that protocols in the documentation set (for instance, the protocols specified in [MS-DRSR] and [MS-SAMR]) will expose the expected behavior to Windows clients. While this document includes a discussion of LDAP, it does so only to specify Active Directory's conformance with and extensions to that protocol, not to specify the protocol itself.
As a result, no protocol examples are appropriate for this document. This section is left in place to maintain section numbering consistency with the documentation template that is used throughout the protocol documentation set.
