Theoretically, an AD domain can contain up to 10 million objects, which includes the user accounts... but 1 million objects per domain is a more practical number.  Recently heard that 2 million had been successfully tested.

Hope this helps!

Thanks a lot Eric. But is it viable to use AD to store UserName and Password of a Web application, as client is insisting for it for security reasons. If reply if you can.

you might want to post that as a new question...

i know you can restrict access to the web app via share permissions but enabling password protection, but cannot give a qualified response if AD can handle this.

post a link to the new Q so that I can at least listen in.
