Installing a Pre-configured AD LDS instance

If you do not have an existing LDAP server, the LifeCycle Manager installation program will deliver an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service (AD LDS) instance that is already configured for LifeCycle Manager users. In this case, you do not need to provide any configuration data during the installation.

For more information on AD LDS, see http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh831593 for a Windows 2012-based installation.
