Active Directory is a hierarchical collection of network resources that can contain users, computers, printers, and other Active Directories. Active Directory Services (ADS) allow administrators to handle and maintain all network resources from a single location. Active Directory is a new feature in Windows 2000 and XP, and is not available to Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Mac OS, or Unix client software.
