HIgh level question

Assuming I create a Forest on a machine, and then put Active Directory on that same machine,

What I want to do is to run an app off that same machine that will run LDAP (from the same machine).

Can I assume that in this scenario, there is no reason in which to crate any other Active Directory client machines ?

    Accepted Solution

    LDAP is a Protocol and once you have an AD Server set up you have LDAP.
    LDAP is just a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol.

    Your AD server is the Directory that LDAP will talk to and query.

    The Forest is just the base Root of your AD Hierarchy.

    You will need nothing else.

    Unless the app REQUIRES LDAP, why would you use it? why not use local authentication?
