When Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is in Active Directory account creation mode, any user added to a site is automatically added to the Active Directory organizational unit identified for use by Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. When running in Active Directory account creation mode, every application pool that contains one or more sites must use an account that has permissions to create, read, and update accounts in the Active Directory organizational unit that the domain administrator configured for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.
