Verifying Membership in the Schema Admins Group

Before anyone attempts to make any schema modifications, verify that the person who will perform the procedure is a member of the Schema Admins group. By default, the only member of this group is the Administrator account of the root domain in the forest. (This Administrator account is automatically made a member of the Administrators, Domain Admins, Domain Users, Enterprise Admins, and Schema Admins groups.) Verify membership using the Active Directory Users and Computers tool found in the Administrative Tools group or in the MMC (after adding the appropriate snap-in). The process requires the following steps:

1. Start the Active Directory Users and Computers utility.

2. Click the domain, then double-click the Users OU. Groups and users will appear in the details pane, as shown in Figure 12.1.
