Active Directory Support for Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2008 adds important new or enhanced services to Active Directory. New or improved services and their key features include:

Active Directory Domain Services
These services are an enhanced and renamed version of AD Directory Services. Active Directory Domain Services centralize configuration data, authentication requests, and information about all stored objects. This allows convenient, centralized management of directory-enabled objects. Windows Server 2008 enhancements to Active Directory Domain Services include:

  • Auditing improvements
  • Fine-grained passwords for more versatile password policies
  • A Read-only Domain Controller for environments with marginal security
  • Restartable Active Directory Domain Services makes maintenance less disruptive
Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services
These services are an enhanced and renamed version of Active Directory Application Mode. Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) provides an alternative database to store directory-enabled application data, which would otherwise be stored on the AD Domain Services database. By allowing you to keep the security account database on a separate location from the application configuration and directory data, you can streamline replication, simplify the Active Directory schema, and partition the directory structure so that AD LDS services is deployed only to relevant application servers. Windows Server 2008 enhancements to Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services include:
  • Install from Media Generation facilitates the creation of installment disks
  • Auditing of changes within the directory service
  • Database Mounting Tool lets you view snapshots of database information
  • Active Directory Sites and Services Support simplifies management of AD LDS replication
  • Dynamic List of LDIF files simplifies setting up an AD LDS server
  • Recursive Linked-Attribute Queries can follow nested attribute links do find additional properties
Active Directory Certificate Services
These services store the certificates and private keys of people, devices, or services, helping to protect the identity and centralizing access to this information for authorized applications. Enhancements to Active Directory Certificate Services include:
  • Enrollment Agent Templates can delegate enrollment agents on a per-temple basis
  • Integrated Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) allows certificates to be issued to network appliances such as routers
  • An Online Responder reduces network traffic when clients validate certificates
  • Enterprise PKI (PKI View) is a new management tool that facilitates the management of Certification Authority (CA) hierarchies
Active Directory Federation Services
These identity access services help authenticate users from partner organizations and make it easier to integrate trusted and untrusted domain resources. Enhancements to Active Directory Federation Services include:
  • Availability As an Integrated Server Role allows Active Directory Federation Services to be managed via Server Manager
  • Integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 supports a single sign-in
  • Integration with Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) eliminates the need for AD RMS to be installed in both organizations
  • Improved Administration makes it easier for both organizations to configure trust information
Active Directory Rights Management Services
These services identify which users have rights to a file and specifies what those rights are (e.g., open, modify, print, forward, etc.). This helps protect data that is distributed to environments that you do not control. Enhancements to Active Directory Rights Management Services include:
  • Application Support allows you to install the Active Directory Rights Management Services client on other Windows operating systems.
  • Persistent Protection keeps your content secure even when it is outside your network environment
  • Usage Policy Templates makes it easy to set usage rights for files with the same rights
