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.
