Directory Services APIs

.NET 2.0 has many new classes to access the Active Directory and other directory services.

The new namespace System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory offers classes to control and manage the Active Directory.

System.DirectoryServices.Protocols offers classes to access directory services with the Web service interface DSML. Windows Server 2003 R2 will offer this Web service interface, with older editions DSML Services for Windows can be installed.
