Spanish term or phrase: esquema de AD
General context: learning to set up a WAN. Specific context: "Un arbol de dominios es una estructura bidireccional formada por un dominio principal (del tipo 'microsoft.com') y uno o varios dominios secundarios (del tipo 'spain.microsoft.com'), que comparten un mismo esquema de AD y que confían entre sí."

Proposed translation: AD (Active Directory) pattern.

AD (Active Directory) schema
Explanation:
*Schema* does look right, but a word of caution: It seems to be a basic part of the "Active Directory" version of *AD*, not the "Administrative Domain" one--I'd stick with "Active Directory" and use "schema" not pattern:

CNS/AD Schema and Information Model

AND...

I just can't locate any text where "Schema" and "Administrative Domain" are paired. The closest I came was the following (which doesn't appear to have been written by a native speaker, in any case), but it turns out that the "AD schema" had to do with Microsoft's Active Directory in this text:

AD attributes present in TNG code found in the OpenLdap 2.0.x/schemas' directory
Attributes in the TNG code don't found in the OpenLdap 2.0.x Microsoft's schema files
Attributes found in the AD Microsoft docs don't found in the TNG stuff
AD (ldap v.3) schemas
An example with the OIDs: TNG (ldap v.3) old-schemas

Several ADSI Microsoft technical docs.

Even in a document dealing specifically with setting up a new administration of domain trees, I also find the following (indicated by **):

to enable and support administration of differentiated
services and/or integrated services within and among
Internet domains, intranets, and extranets.

Thank you for helping me once again. You got the context right--Microsoft's Active Directory--and 'schema'
is convincing: it's one of the terms I found in my glossary searches.

Administrative Domain schema


Explanation:
AD stands for Administrative Domain. See the following definition:

Administrative domain (dominio administrativo).- Grupo de hosts, enrutadores y redes operadas y administradas por una sola organización. Este concepto de Internet está definido como RFC 1136.

(http://www.praxistelecom.com/glosario/a.html)

It can also stand for Actoive Directory, but it is clear that for your case the right meaning is the first one:

"AD
1) Administrative Domain
2) Active Directory

1) Dominio Administrativo
2) Directorio Activo

1) Grupo de hosts (computador principal en un ambiente de procesamiento distribuido que provee servicios a nivel de aplicaciones), enrutadores y redes operadas y manejadas por una sola organización.

2) Directorio de red robusto que proporciona a Windows 2000 todos los beneficios de un directorio central de red, siendo fácil de instalar y configurar. Sin embargo AD puede convertirse en una limitación cuando nuevos metadirectorios desarrollados por terceros, basados en LDAP (Lightweigh Directory Access Protocol) aparezcan en el mercado"

(http://www.espe.edu.ec/publicaciones/articulos/sistemas/sigl...

"Pattern" is right, but I'd prefer "schema": "AD schema"

GOOD LUCK!

Ybroad is right


Explanation:
Yes, after re-reading the definitions and the query text, I agree that the right term for AD is Active Directory. I associated too quicky the "domain" term that que query and "administrative domain" have in common.
Ybroad's feedback also confirms that "Schema" is the right word.

Good luck!
