The Windows 2000/2003 global catalog is created on the forest
root domain controller when DCPROMO is run for the first
time, and this server is known as the Global Catalog Server.
You can set up
any server to be a
Global Catalog Server
by going to the Active Directory Sites and Services MMC and
in the console tree, right-clicking the NTDS Settings of the
server you want to make into a
Global Catalog Server and selecting PROPERTIES.
On the GENERAL tab of the PROPERTIES page for that
server, check the GLOBAL CATALOG checkbox and select OK.
The Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory is
partitioned in three distinct parts.
- Schema Partition. The information in the Schema
Partition defines all objects and their allowed attributes
and is common to all domains in the forest. This partition
is replicated to all domain controllers in the forest.
- Configuration Partition. The Configuration
Partition outlines your domain structure and replication
topology. This information is common to all domains in the
forest. This partition is replicated to all domain
controllers in the forest.
- Domain Partition. The Domain Partition
references data objects of a given domain. This
information is commonly relevant to only the single domain,
it is not shared, and this partition is replicated to
all domain controllers in the domain only. It is a subset
of this data from all objects in all domains (partial
replica) that is stored in the global catalog.
All of the objects in every domain, and a subset of the
properties (partial replica) of all objects in a forest, are
replicated to the global catalog.
