3.4.4.4.3.1.6 ActiveDirectoryForest/GlobalCatalogs

The GlobalCatalogs element contains an array of FQDNs (1) of the global catalogs in the forest.

 <xs:element name="GlobalCatalogs" nillable="true" type="sera:ArrayOfstring" />

The GlobalCatalogs element is populated from the server!dnsHostName attribute on the parent object of all nTDSDSA objects  ([MS-ADTS] section 6.1.1.2.2.1.2.1.1) that meet the following criteria:

  • The objectClass attribute of the object is nTDSDSA and the client has access rights to read the attribute.

  • The NTDSDSA_OPT_IS_GC ([MS-ADTS] section 6.1.1.2.2.1.2.1.1) bit of the nTDSDSA!options attribute is set to 1 and the client has access rights to read the attribute.

  • The server!dnsHostName attribute is present on the parent of the nTDSDSA object and the client has access rights to read the attribute.

If no nTDSDSA objects satisfy the above requirements, the server returns a null ActiveDirectoryForest/GlobalCatalogs element.
