1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

The Group Policy: Central Access Policies Extension depends on the Group Policy: Core Protocol specified in [MS-GPOL], to provide a list, via LDAP, of GPOs that apply to policy target accounts. This protocol also depends on LDAP for retrieving CAPs. The Group Policy: Central Access Policies Extension also transmits Group Policy settings and instructions between the Group Policy client and the Group Policy file share by reading and writing files via a file access protocol.

Note  For an overview of file access concepts, see [MS-FASOD].

The following diagram illustrates the protocol relationships.
