Several Windows Active Directory (AD) forests are in use at U-M. The largest and most inclusive of these is UMROOT, which is administered by ITS. UMROOT is where users are created and both central and local units place their Active Directory (AD) objects for using the Windows infrastructure.
- User accounts are created automatically for members of the U-M community when they get their uniqname. MCommunity manages the provisioning and de-provisioning of accounts.
- Departments can manage accounts via the U-M Windows Central Accounts Service.
