BUG: Active Directory "Domain Check" Test

Unread post by leethompson » Fri Jan 26, 2018 2:01 am

The Active Directory "Domain Check" test will error out if there is a LDAP server with a SRV record that is not presently online, even if others are online.

My domain has an emergency VMware RODC that I sync on a monthly basis (or whenever there's been a large update to group policy etc). If it's offline, the domain check for communicating with the LDAP server fails. It does this even if you force the online LDAP server in the advanced domain settings under DC IP/FQDN.

The rest of the AD integration appears to work fine, in spite of this test check failure, so mostly it's just causing IT people to go bald from hair ripping.

DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 5
2008 R2 DC (and RODC)
