Infrastructure master and global catalog(AD)


Dear Silver,

The job of an Infrastructure Master is to compare objects in the local domain with other domains of the same forest. Whereas a Global catalog server has a partial copy of every object present in the forest hence if the server in which Infrastructure Master is present is also a Global Catalog there will be no difference.

If in a Domain every domain controller is a global catalog server the Infrastructure Master is not required as the global catalog server already has the information about the objects of other domains. Hence a Infrastructure Master can be there in a global catalog server in a single domain forest or multiple domain forest.
