On the AD LDS Administrators page, you must select a user
or group to become the default administrator for this
Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)
instance. The user or group that you select will have full
administrative control of the AD LDS instance.
By default, the Active Directory Lightweight Directory
Services Setup Wizard specifies the currently logged on user as the
administrator for the AD LDS instance. You can change this
selection to any local or domain account or group on your
- If you specify a group to become the AD LDS administrator,
every member of that group will have administrative control of the
AD LDS instance.
- The user or group that you select automatically becomes a
member of the Administrators group in the configuration directory
partition of the AD LDS instance.
- Do not specify built-in groups or built-in accounts, such as
DOMAIN\Administrators, as the AD LDS administrator. Instead,
if you want to specify a group, specify a domain group, such as
domainname\Domain Admins, where domainname represents
the name of your domain.
