Windows Server 2012 Active directory schema version is = 52

How to find the Schema Version:

I follow 2 ways of identifying

a) Registry : Administrators can navigate to regedit and find the Active Directory Schema version number as described in the below








b) ADSI Edit: Another way to view the Schema version is using ADSI Edit.

Step1 : Open ADSI Edit

Step2 : Connect to Schema as shown below






Step3: Right click the Distinguish Name > Properties . The schema version can be located at “Object Version” attribute as shown below







There are other ways to display the AD Schema version ( DSQuery / Powershell ) , but i have used the easy ways 🙂
