Notes

  • To open the ADAM ADSI Edit snap-in, click Start, point to All Programs, point to ADAM, and then click ADAM ADSI Edit.

  • For information about how to connect and bind to an ADAM instance using ADAM ADSI Edit, see Related Topics.

  • By default, an ADAM user account is enabled when the user account is created. However, no initial password is set on an ADAM user account that is created using ADAM ADSI Edit. On ADAM instances running on Windows Server 2003, where local or domain password policy restrictions are in effect, the ADAM user account is disabled by default. Before you can enable the user account, you must set a password for it that meets the password policy restrictions that are in effect. This does not apply to ADAM instances running on Windows XP Professional. For more information, see Related Topics.

  • Any object class can be used as a security principal in ADAM, if the object class definition contains the SecurityPrincipal static auxiliary class and the unicodePwd attribute. For more information, see Related Topics.

  • The user, inetOrgPerson, and OrganizationalPerson object classes are not available until you import the ADAM user class definitions into the schema. For more information, see Related Topics.
