Zone attributes in classic RFC 2307 zones

The zone object class and its attributes in the classic RFC 2307‑compliant zone are the same as the classic Centrify zone. The zone object is stored as a container object, and the common name (cn) of the object must be set to the zone name. Most of the other attributes for a zone are stored as pseudo-attributes using the Active Directory description attribute.

The following table summarizes how zone attributes are stored in Active Directory for classic RFC 2307-compliant zones. For more information about any attribute setting, see Zone attributes in classic Centrify zones.
