When you create an application directory partition, you are

creating the first instance of this partition. You can create an

application directory partition by using the create nc

option in the domain management menu of Ntdsutil. When

creating an application directory partition using LDP or ADSI,

provide a description in the description attribute of the domain

DNS object that indicates the specific application that will use

the partition. For example, if the application directory partition

will be used to store data for a Microsoft accounting program, the

description could be Microsoft accounting application. Ntdsutil

does not facilitate the creation of a description. To create or

delete an application directory partition 1. Open Command

Prompt. 2. Type:

ntdsutil 3. At the ntdsutil command prompt, type:

domain management 4. At the domain management command

prompt, do one of the following: · To create an application

directory partition, type:

create

ncApplicationDirectoryPartitionDomainController

Answer:

Start >> RUN>> CMD >> type there "NTDSUTIL"

Press Enter Ntdsutil: domain management Press Enter Domain

Management: Create NC dc=, dc=, dc=com <> Use the

DnsCmd command to create an application directory partition.

Configure an additional domain controller that is acting as a

DNS server to host the new application directory partition that you

created. To do this, use the following syntax with the
