There is: Intrasite Replication     Urgent Replication     Intersite Replication     Intersite Change Notification Replication     Reciprocal Replication     Immediate Replication     Manual Replication

Active Directory Maximum Limits

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Server 2003

I ran across a document from Microsoft that lists maximum limits for Active Directory. This document pertains to Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003. There is no reference to Windows Server 2008 in the document. However, the majority of the limits also apply to Windows Server 2008. Below is a summary of the maximums. The full details, including rationale, can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756101.aspx.
