Question on UCS Domain Controllers


#1

Ok, I might sound like a bit of a nube here… but I need to ask…

I understand the UCS can only have 1 Master Domain Controller, and it is recommended to have a Backup Domain Controller. However can one have more than one backup domain controller, or does any additional domain controllers HAVE to be slave domain controllers? We currently have a Single Master DC, and a Single Backup DC at the Main Site, I’d like to put another Backup DC at a remote site, (solely for LDAP DR purposes) then have the any other DCs be slaves for applications that need one close by, otherwise everything will be a member ucs server. Is this possible or am I forced to have remote sites as DC Slaves only.

You can have multiple DC Backups without any restrictions in comparison to DC Slaves.

Kind regards,
