ActiveDir.org is the home of the Active Directory Discussions Mailing List which was started in January 2001 with the aim of providing a forum for discussing various aspects of Microsoft's Active Directory technology. Since then the list has grown to a membership of over 1000 subscribers and 5000 site members.  The list has become extremely active, and includes many of the foremost experts in Active Directory.

The focus here at ActiveDir.org is the mailing list, but we now also offer a range of useful resources (see left navigation options).

  • ZJORZ just posted 'RE: [ActiveDir] ADFS config database maintenance'

    We are using SQL Mirroring (same datacenter) for HA and SQL Log Shipping (different datacenter) for DR. Works like a charm! While a colleague was doing stuff in ADFS, I performed a manual failover. Within ADFS, a delay of a sec or two was n...

  • joe just posted 'Re: [ActiveDir] ADFS config database maintenance'

    I'm a much bigger fan of mirrored SQL for high availability rather than clustering. Mirroring is done at the SQL layer instead of the OS layer and gives you the ability to do things like patch the principal while having the secondary keep running....

  • kool@uw.edu just posted '[ActiveDir] ADFS config database maintenance'

    Our university ADFS is using a clustered SQL server for its configuration database. This database has to occasionally be taken offline for maintenance. Does anyone know if ADFS can tolerate short periods of config DB unavailability? Joe Kaplan sug...

  • joe just posted 'Re: [ActiveDir] ADFS 2.0 DR testing for O365'

    That is the approach I would use, yes. If you create a "run book" for your DR scenario, you might want to put some constraints on the duration you'll stay in secondary mode like "2 days" or something like that just so your team will know what the ...

  • Mahesh just posted 'Re: [ActiveDir] ADFS 2.0 DR testing for O365'

    Hi Joe, Thanks for help. Will go ahead and stick to Read only scenario for testing purpose. My understanding is one should convert secondary site ADFS server to primary only when primary server site gone down permanently (long period). Let me ...

  • joe just posted 'Re: [ActiveDir] ADFS 2.0 DR testing for O365'

    Hi Mahesh, If you are using WID and want your secondary server to be "editable", you'll want to make it primary. If you can tolerate a read-only scenario I believe it will work fine. You might also consider moving to a SQL-based back end. You...

    Hi Darin, Yes, I saw that both updates have been withdrawn. I signed up for the security bulletin RSS feed so I won't miss any of these notifications. Did you install all of the 8/13/13 updates for WS08R2 systems? There were 11 including one ea...
