Not sure how many people would need this now, but a lot of people have contacted me for this older poster. In fact, this was my first one so let’s just say it’s going back …hummm… a year or two :)


This poster, originally published in the March-April 2006 edition of TechNet Magazine, provides a strong visual tool to aide in the understanding of Active Directory components and technologies. From Site Component Topology, to Security, to Group Policy and more, this poster distills all of the must-have information about Active Directory into one easy reference.


Despite its age, some concepts and basics never change that much. Forgive this shameless plug for an older poster :)
