Running Windows Domain Controller as VM Issues

Post by fatpizza » Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:00 am

Hi,
I just updated the firmware on my TS 877 today, and I noticed that after rebooting my NAS I can lo longer authenticate via AD, unless I manually go through the AD connection Wizard again.
My DC is actually a VM on the QNAP so I understand that it may cause a small issue since the DC won't immediately be available upon boot, however I thought there would be some repeat checks periodically etc. The DC appears as 'Standby' if I go to 'Edit Redundant Domain Controller' section.
I also tried setting my QNAP as a Read-Only domain controller on the same domain but I still had the same issues.
Any ideas?

Also, I'd prefer not to set the QNAP as a fully fledged DC since I feel that's a workaround rather than fix.

Hey fatpizza, did you ever get anywhere with this? I also setup Win 2019 Server on a Virtual Station VM acting as the DC / AD / DNS, and then I updated the QNAP firmware a few hours later and totally bombed my setup. I can't even get the QNAP to rejoin the domain now.
