Provides data storage and retrieval support for directory-enabled applications


Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory service that provides data storage and retrieval support for directory-enabled applications, without the dependencies that are required for the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Multiple instances of AD LDS can be run concurrently on a single computer, with an independently managed schema for each AD LDS instance.

Steps for getting started with AD LDS

The following sections provide step-by-step instructions for setting up AD LDS. These sections provide both graphical user interface (GUI) and command-line methods for backing up and restoring AD LDS, where applicable.

  • Click Start, and then click Server Manager.
  • In the console tree, right-click Roles, and then click Add Roles.
  • Review the information on the Before You Begin page of the Add Roles Wizard, and then click Next.
  • On the Select Server Roles page, in the Roles list, select the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services check box, and then click Next.
  • Finish adding the AD LDS server role by following the instructions in the wizard.

  • Create a new AD LDS instance
  • Import data into an AD LDS instance

  • Start, stop, and restart an AD LDS instance
