2.3 Directory Service Schema Elements

DFS-R is configured using AD objects. File replication proceeds between computers within the same forest whose principal names are maintained and authenticated by AD. File ACLs are replicated fully as participating computers are expected to use AD to identify ACLs.

The protocol accesses the following Directory Service schema classes and attributes listed in the following table(s).

For the syntactic specifications of the following <Class> or <Class><Attribute> pairs, refer either to:

Active Directory Domain Services (AD/DS) ([MS-ADA1], [MS-ADA2], [MS-ADA3], and [MS-ADSC]).

Or to:

Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD/LDS) ([MS-ADLS]).

objectGUID

DFS-R relies on global configuration information (stored in Active Directory) for proper functioning.

These objects prescribe configuration information, in particular the following:

  • replicaSetId: The GUID of replication groups. They are configured as the GUID of an object under the path msDFSR-GlobalSettings/msDFSR-ReplicationGroup.

  • connectionId: The GUID of connections. They are configured as the GUID of an object under the path msDFSR-GlobalSettings/msDFSR-ReplicationGroup/msDFSR-Member/msDFSR-Connection or msDFSR-GlobalSettings/msDFSR-ReplicationGroup/msDFSR-Member/nTDSConnection.

  • contentSetId: The GUID of a replicated folder. They are configured as the GUID of an object under msDFSR-GlobalSettings/msDFSR-ReplicationGroup/msDFSR-Content/msDFSR-ContentSet.

  • Principal names: The principal authenticated computer names. Computer objects form the basis of an AD configuration.

These are used in the RPC messages and MUST be known to both the server and the client in order for partners to establish trust, communication, and which folders are replicated among them. This section summarizes the set of configuration parameters that are used in AD to configure DFS-R.

An object layout example is illustrated in section 4.3.1.
