How the zone type can affect features

Because the details of the data model depend on the Active Directory schema and the zone type, the zone type can also impact the features a particular zone can support. For example, classic and hierarchical Centrify zones support multiple profiles for each user but SFU zones do not. The following table summarizes key differences between zone types.
