Backup Server for Domain Controller

activedirectory

(Joseph John) #1

Hi, I am trying to evaluate nethserver, to function as Directory server. I installed it configured it I could see the user details

Now like to check on the High availability options for nethserver, can I configure another Nether Server and have a backup domain controller
I checked in the options, but I have not seen any options for it
Is it possible to have a backup nethserver in my network for HP
Guidance and advice requested
Thanks
Joseph John


Active Directory BDC/slave role

Hi @Joseph_John,

this may a be a possibility for a poor man’s backup DC:

Wiki:
https://wiki.nethserver.org/doku.php?id=howto:add_ns7_samba_domain_controller_to_existing_active_directory

I tried joining NS samba to Windows AD as DC, which will replicate AD but no sysvolrep and has to be tested:

It should be possible, but the NethGui doesnt provide the option. I’m not sure how feasible it is to use Nethserver as backup DC.
