Never tried it, but I would willing to try. Do you have a lab we could work in? I don’t have any access to a Mac.

Hi, I would like to know if it’s possible to transition from an existing Windows AD to the Synology, so that PC’s and user accounts along with their GUIDs are maintained? Doesnt seem to be much information available out there on this.

I have never attempted this, but from what I have read it is not possible. The Synology (Samba) likes to be the Primary Domain Controller for the domain and doesn’t play nice with others. I have heard that it does not even communicate with a secondary domain controller because of the difficulty setting up the trust relationship.

Bonjour à tous,

J’ai un soucis de lenteur à l’ouverture des sessions des utilisateurs. Pourtant quand je ping le DNS le temps de réponse est très correct.
J’ai mis en place des profils itinérants cela vient t’il d’un mauvais paramétrage?
Merci d’avance pour votre aide

Les profils itinérants sont toujours lents les deux premières fois où ils sont utilisés lors de la connexion et de la déconnexion en raison de la synchronisation avec le serveur. Assurez-vous que vous utilisez l’adresse IP du serveur au lieu de UNC pour le chemin du profil itinérant afin d’éviter des problèmes de résolution DNS. Synology AD n’est pas parfait mais utilisable.

Can I use this If I wanted to drop my Windows Domain Controller and switch to the Synology Domain Controller?

You can create another domain with the Synology as the DC, but you cannot keep the current domain.
