If you try to do so, the forest is irretrievably destroyed. Under Windows Server 2003 Active Directory, you can rename the forest root domain, but you cannot change its status as the forest root domain or make a different domain the root. com can exist together and share resources. Typically, individual companies implement their own forest, and in this configuration, you would want to employ a forest trust to provide seamless access.

1 Uniquely Identifying Objects When you are potentially storing millions of objects in Active Directory, each object has to be uniquely locatable and identifiable. To that end, objects have a Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) assigned to them by the system at creation. This 128-bit number is guaranteed to be unique by Microsoft. The object GUID stays with the object until it is deleted, regardless of whether it is renamed or moved within the Directory Information Tree (DIT). While an object GUID is unique and resilient, it is not very easy to remember, nor is it based on the directory hierarchy.

Chapter 22 explains how other persistent objects such as services, shares, and printers may be manipulated; it also looks at dynamic objects, such as print jobs, user sessions, and resources. Chapter 23 describes how each object contains its own list of permissions and auditing entries that governs how it can be accessed and how access is logged. The chapter then details how you can create and manipulate permission and auditing entries as you choose. Chapter 24 covers creation of new classes and attributes programmatically in the schema, and modification of the existing Active Directory snap-ins to perform additional customized functions.
