Item Details

Query Policy

Provides operational limits for a number of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) operations to ensure that domain controllers can support service-level guarantees.

DNS Alias

Displays the name of the alias (CNAME) resource record in Domain Name System (DNS) that replication partners use to locate domain controllers for replication. The alias (CNAME) resource record uses the globally unique identifier (GUID) of the directory system agent (also known as DSA) object.

Global Catalog check box

When you select this check box, the global catalog is added to this domain controller. When you clear this check box, the global catalog is removed from this domain controller. Because global catalog servers are required to check group membership during the logon process, adding the global catalog to a domain controller in each site reduces intersite traffic that is caused by logons.
