Backup Server for Domain Controller

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

Hi @Joseph_John,

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


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.
