Hello,

I still have some trouble with the specific function of the Infrastructure master role

At any time, there can be only one domain controller acting as the infrastructure master in each domain. The infrastructure master is responsible for updating references from objects in its domain to objects in other domains. The infrastructure master compares its data with that of a global catalog. Global catalogs receive regular updates for objects in all domains through replication, so the global catalog data will always be up to date. If the infrastructure master finds data that is out of date, it requests the updated data from a global catalog. The infrastructure master then replicates that updated data to the other domain controllers in the domain.

Those references are GUID, SID, and DN (as stated in MS documentation). But "The infrastructure master is responsible for updating references from objects in its domain to objects in other domains" is vague to me. Can you give me an example or explain it in a simpler way.


Thanks in advance guys,
