Active Directory offers a feature called Service Connection Points to publish information to applications so they can discover the relevant server; however the documentation is sparse and I have trouble understanding
- Where the information is stored (Configuration partition?)
- What information is shared?
- How is it secured?
- What applications use it (Outlook Autodiscover does, perhaps SCOM too?)
This is especially interesting for situations where we have LDAP sync going or a DSML endpoint exposed.
Any additional information on SCP is appreciated
