LDS Active Directory Schema Status Unavailable

Back when LDS (Lightweight Directory Services) was called ADAM (Active Directory Application Mode) there was a console known as "ADAM Schema" which was the ADAM version of the "Active Directory Schema" MMC console.

Now with LDS the "ADAM Schema" no longer exists. Microsoft say to use "Active Directory Schema" for both LDS and Active Directory databases. For the TechNet article please see:

I setup an LDS instance running on TCP10001. When I try and connect to the instance using Active Directory Schema on localhost:10001 it comes up as available. However I know my instance is there as I can connect to it using ADSIEdit.

I found out if you connect using the IP address of the server's primary network interface card it connects successfully.

Must be something dodgy embedded into the code of the Active Directory Schema snap-in.


  1. Life is all about timing... the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable... attainable. Have the patience, wait it out It's all about timing. See the link below for more info.

  4. After being in relationship with George for five years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called DR Mako and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 6pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him :+2348108737816
