Regular CommuniGate Pro Domains do not rely on Directory data. All Domain and Account settings are stored in files inside the CommuniGate Pro file directories and CommuniGate Pro Server reads those files when it needs to retrieve Domain and Account settings. Regular Domains can store copies of some Account Settings in Directory records.
The directory record for a Regular Domain is created when the Server needs to store a directory record for any object in that Domain. For example, when the Server needs to create a directory record for the Account john in the dom1.dom Domain, it creates the cn=dom1.dom record first (if it does not exist), and then the Server creates the uid=john,cn=dom1.dom record for the Account john.

Now Directory search operations (initiated with an LDAP client or the WebUser Interface) can display the record for the newly created account.
Directory records for Regular Domain Accounts contain the following attributes:
The Regular Domains panel located on the Directory Integration page of the WebAdmin Interface allows you to specify these options:
If this option is selected, the Directory records for Regular Domain Accounts
