The management data such as topology, configurations, and policies is stored in the Central Management Store (CMS). CMS is implemented as a SQL database and the name of the database is XDS. Change Auditor audits Active Directory when an agent is installed on domain controllers. It audits the XDS database when the agent is installed on the SQL server hosting the CMS database and a template is created for the CMS server.
