Highly available directory server
Add a secondary domain controller to Synology Directory Server to take over in case of unexpected disruptions and provide added capacity.
Replicate all data from one domain controller to another every five minutes. Ensure that all domain services remain available in case of domain controller failure.
Automatically distribute sign-in requests to both controllers via DNS services. Bolster directory service performance and prevent overloading.
Set up a dual domain controller structure with any two compatible Synology NAS. No need to use identical models.
Activate 2-factor authentication or choose from a range of passwordless login methods. Eliminate weak passwords and secure your DSM account.
