AWS Directory Service
Administration Guide (Version 1.0)

Managing Your Directory

You use the AWS Directory Service management console to perform certain directory-related actions, such as changing directory information or deleting an existing directory. After a directory is created, most administrative functions are performed with directory management tools, such as the Active Directory Administration Tools.


Simple AD directories do not support Active Directory Web Services. Because of this, tools that rely on Active Directory Web Services, such as the Active Directory Administrative Center, do not work with your Simple AD directory.
