Which Active Directory domain controller is being used for RHEV authentication?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • How can we determine what domain controller is currently being used for Active Directory Authentication and other AD requests? This capability will be required in order to troubleshoot possible future AD authentication issues.
  • We will be implementing the multiple Domain Controller config in 3.2 as specified in Knowledge Solution 70533 and would like to know what the Failover mechanism is? If we have 3 domain controllers listed, how does RHEV-M determine which AD controller is used to service requests and what is the criteria that us used to failover to the next one?
