TOPIC
    About Active Directory Object Model

SHORT DESCRIPTION
    Describes the object model of the Active Directory module for Windows
    PowerShell.

LONG DESCRIPTION
    This topic explains the Active Directory module classes and their
    properties used to model actual Active Directory attributes. It also
    outlines the class hierarchy constructed from its Active Directory
    counterpart. The object model establishes a data foundation for all the
    operations supported by Active Directory module cmdlets.

  Class Hierarchy
    The following list shows the class hierarchy defined in the Active
    Directory module object model, with class inheritance implied by
    indentation. This inheritance model allows for Active Directory cmdlets
    to accept a range of object types as input. This means, for example,
    that the cmdlet Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership can accept as input any
    of the following objects: ADGroup, ADAccount, ADComputer,
    ADServiceAccount or ADUser. This works because of the inheritance model
    and guarantees that an ADUser object has all of the properties of an
    ADPrincipal object.


    ADEntity
      ADRootDSE
      ADObject
        ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy
        ADOptionalFeature
        ADOrganizationalUnit
        ADPartition
          ADDomain

        ADDomainController


    Active Directory Module Classes
      The following listing shows every Active Directory module class from
      the class hierarchy listing. Each class defines a set of properties,
      some of which are LDAP attributes that are retrieved by default and
      some are new properties created specifically for the Active Directory
      module. These new properties are derived from one or more LDAP
      attributes as outlined in the class listings.
