AD Schema Extension


As per our company policies, we cant extend the AD Schema. Is AD Schema extension is mandatory or not?

If we dont extend AD Schema, Roaming Boundaries and Automatic site assignments wont work. So how the environment will run in that case?

    Per documentation it is not mandatory though but as Harjit and Jitesh mentioned is makes life easy. It is strongly recommended to get this done and there is no harm in extending the schema.

    If not extended then you may end up with additional configurations like DNS and WINS … simply introducing some kind of complexities to environment.


    AD Schema extension is absolutely necessary for the installation of ConfigMgr and to make sure it works.
