active directory server
Active Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for the Windows domain networks. It is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. Initially, Active Directory was only in charge of centralized domain management. Starting with Windows Server 2008, however, Active Directory became an umbrella title for a broad range of directory-based identity-related services.A server running Active Directory Domain Service (AD DS) is called a domain controller. It authenticates and authorizes all users and computers in a Windows domain type network—assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software. For example, when a user logs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, Active Directory checks the submitted password and determines whether the user is a system administrator or normal user. Also, it allows management and storage of information, provides authentication and authorization mechanisms, and establishes a framework to deploy other related services: Certificate Services, Active Directory Federation Services, Lightweight Directory Services and Rights Management Services.
Active Directory uses Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) versions 2 and 3, Microsoft's version of Kerberos, and DNS.
I set up my domain a few weeks ago. I migrated a lot of applications, it took a long time.
Unfortunately, I gave a wrong domain name and I have a problem. I should have named the domain "local.comany.com" but I did "company.com" and I am having a lot of problems with external services.
I want to create a user in a domain using RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools on Windows 10) that will have the permission to create, edit and delete users for only one group.
Can someone tell me how to do it?
I am trying to add a DS1618+ as a Member DC in an existing Windows domain. It does all its checks fine, then starts and gets to about .5% complete, hangs for a bit, then fails. Not much in the way of an error message, it just says to "Failed to join domain. Contact Synology Support".
Does anyone here have experience setting up intra domain trust between a Syno hosted AD (be it their Active Directory Server or any other tool) and a "vanilla" Windows AD ?

This question was asked once in August of 2018 on the Synology forums, but there was no answer. I am using the RSAT tools successfully with the Synology Active Directory server, however I can not find the central store location for the GPO ADMX templates. RSAT shows the forest tree as Windows...

since package Radius server does not have any dedicated forum I'm posting this here, because it may be related to Synology Directory Server, too.

Some months ago, last year to be precisely, it was on a Synology event, I saw a video that mentioned that DSM 7 will bring a new Active Directory package that will give us the possibility to set up a secondary domain controller (SDC), obviously on a second capable diskstation.
Are there any...
Today I tried to do a new setup of a domain on the active directory server package. I have had it running with a test domain without any issues, so I wanted to do it now with my actual domain.
I removed the test domain and entered my actual domain, it starts configuring the domain but...
