  • Hi,

    your question is about AD webservice, but your question appears in the Outlook forum?

    Can you please clarify the topic?

  • The web server role in Active Directory allows for the management of Active Directory using a web browser rather than the MMC snap in "Active Directory Users & Computers"

  • hi.

    Active Directory Web Services (ADWS) in Windows Server 2008 R2 is a new Windows service that provides a Web service interface to Active Directory domains, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instances, and Active Directory Database Mounting Tool instances that are running on the same Windows Server 2008 R2 server as ADWS. If the ADWS service on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server is stopped or disabled, client applications, such as the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell or the Active Directory Administrative Center will not be able to access or manage any directory service instances that are running on this server.

    ADWS is installed automatically when you add the AD DS or AD LDS server roles to your Windows Server 2008 R2 server. ADWS is configured to run if you make this Windows Server 2008 R2 server a domain controller by running Dcpromo.exe or if you create an AD LDS instance on this Windows Server 2008 R2 server.
