To create a TAPI application directory partition

Required. Specifies the DNS name of the TAPI application directory partition that is to be created. Note that this name must be a fully qualified domain name.
Specifies the DNS name of the domain controller on which the TAPI application directory partition is to be created. If the domain controller name is not specified, the name of the local computer is used.
Specifies that this directory will be the default TAPI application directory partition for the domain. There can be multiple TAPI application directory partitions in a domain.

You can also create a TAPI application directory partition by running the Configure Your Server Wizard. If you select Typical setup for a first server, a TAPI application directory partition with the name MSTAPI.DomainName is automatically created on the first domain controller that is configured in a forest. For more information about the prerequisites for configuring the typical setup for a first server, see Related Topics.
