Microsoft going to deprecate IDMU-features in Windows Server

With this blog post, Microsoft is announcing to deprecate the Identity Management for Unix features in Windows Server, starting with Windows Server 2012 R2. Affected features are:

  • the UNIX attributes tab in the User and Computers (dsa.msc)
  • NIS (Network Information Service)
  • RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools)
  • In the comments of the blog post, a member of the Active Directory Documentation Team made clarification that the Active Directory schema will not be touched. So extensions in place will stay as well as the data stored in these attributes.

    Microsoft made the decision to deprecate their features and to recommend using alternative tools for managing Unix attributes and features using Windows Server.
