It’s late and I’ve just gone thru the “Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview” schema aka “Schema 69″ and it seems like it first introduces an attribute to the schema that it later on in the process will defunct.

Table 1: Sch61.ldf

Introduces the attribute msDS-DrsFarmID

dn: CN=ms-DS-Drs-Farm-ID,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=X

changetype: ntdsSchemaAdd

objectClass: attributeSchema

cn: ms-DS-Drs-Farm-ID

adminDisplayName: ms-DS-Drs-Farm-ID

adminDescription: This attribute stores the name of the federation service this DRS object is associated with.

ldapDisplayName: msDS-DrsFarmID

attributeId: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.2265

omSyntax: 64

attributeSyntax: 2.5.5.12

instanceType: 4

searchFlags: 0

isMemberOfPartialAttributeSet: TRUE

systemOnly: TRUE

schemaIdGuid:: ZvdVYC4gzUmovuUrsVnt+w==

systemFlags: 16

 

Table 2: Sch61.ldf

Modifys the attribute msDS-DrsFarmID

dn: CN=ms-DS-Drs-Farm-ID,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=X

changetype: ntdsSchemaModify

add: showInAdvancedViewOnly

showInAdvancedViewOnly: TRUE

 

Table 3: Sch67.ldf

Makes the attribute msDS-DrsFarmID defunct

dn: CN=ms-DS-Drs-Farm-ID,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=X

changetype: ntdsSchemaModify

add: isDefunct

isDefunct: TRUE


I don’t want more crap in my dev forest than I have to so I’m going to comment those out.
