  1. yeah … well, sry, but this is a realy uninformative article. These are major parts of an Active Directory and some folks who might encounter issues with one of these should know how they work, replicate and how to locate them. These directories are invisible and only accessible with some tricks.

    I could figure out ur info with google in 10 seconds and i find out way more.
