This has been a question that has come up with several of my customers recently.
If you are a developer looking for a general overview of Active Directory schema, see the Active Directory Schema overview topics.
If you are looking for programming guidelines for updating or modifying the schema, For more information about extending and customizing the schema, see Extending the Schema, as well as many of the topics in the Active Directory Domain Services and Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services programming guides.
Applications that must use this feature should be designed to accommodate the blocking write, particularly in giving the user feedback, if the program or script executes interactively.
As with any change to the Active Directory infrastructure, the two primary concerns around implementing a schema extension are: 1. However, having personally helped customers with dozens of schema updates, I can honestly say that staying within best practices isn’t that hard, and definitely makes implementation less risky and less stressful.
Have you tested it, so you can be reasonably sure it will behave as expected when implemented in production? The reason this question gets so sticky is that customers either don’t have a test environment, or they don’t have a test environment that reasonably reflects the production environment.
I was just reading this interesting link on IE Group Policies which mentioned updating Server 2003 AD schema to 2008. Could anyone be so kind as to explain how to do this?
