Understand the Active Directory Max Limits…

Today, I was asked on this question – When one is designing Active Directory… What should you know other than the requirement from the client?

Hmm.. What I think is that one should know the limits of the technology you are applying.

So.. What are the limits of Active Directory? For example, number of domains one forest can have? Number of user group that a user can have? Number of OU per domain? Number of Domain Controllers can have within a domain?

I have a link that is from Microsoft TechNet which I find it useful and interesting for one to read which shares the Active Directory MaX limits (AD2000 to AD2008)


I find that only the Enterprise level AD may hit the limit but will be really very rare… But sure interesting to read. 🙂
