Detailed Description

The New-CMActiveDirectoryForest cmdlet creates an Active Directory forest object that has a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), description, and publishing path that you supply.

If you configured an Active Directory Forest Discovery method, you can enable discovery for an Active Directory forest. After you enable discovery, Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager discovers Active Directory sites and subnets.

Active Directory Forest Discovery requires a global account to discover or publish to untrusted forests.
