  • AD enabled applications are applications that integrate with Active Directory in some way. Non-AD enabled means they don't integrate with AD. 


    "An application that reads, writes, or modifies data that is stored in a directory service. Directory enabled applications typically leverage the storage and search capabilities of a directory service. An example of a directory enabled application would be one that provides a rich set of user-specific information by querying a directory service for the pertinent information – for example, it could provide a report of all users in a specific business group, or all users on a project, or all computers in a specific location or with a specific service pack applied, etc."
