Checklist: Create an Application Directory Partition
Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012
Each instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) can contain one or more application directory partitions to hold application data. All application directory partitions in an AD LDS directory instance share a single schema that defines the objects and attributes that can be stored in the directory. When you create an application directory, you can create a new, empty application partition, or you can replicate one or more application directory partitions from an existing AD LDS instance.
