Microsoft Releases “Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)” for Windows7

 
AD LDS is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory service that provides Windows 7 flexible support for directory-enabled applications, without the dependencies that are required for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). AD LDS provides much of the same functionality as AD DS, but it does not require the deployment of domains or domain controllers. In environments where AD DS exists, AD LDS can use AD DS for the authentication of Windows security principals. You can run multiple instances of AD LDS concurrently on a single computer, and have an independently managed schema for each AD LDS instance.
