    Hey, I am getting this error.

    some module reported error when saving changes more information on the logs in /var/log/zentyal

    The local Domain pdc.mydomain.lan must match the AD server domain mydomain.lan.

    Now I have checked the names of the severs and net but i can’t figure out where im going wrong.

    What caused this issue? You can try to re-join the domain again!

    Hi Matei, thanks for your great tutorials. There are great help for us. We configure one BDC in our network but after few months syncronization between Dc and BDC is broken. We try a lot of commands to resync them but we don’t success at all. My question is, if we demote BDC we lost authentication for all other services on BDC? Like vpn accounts, sharing atribute (there are some folders shares on BDC)? And if we join again BDC in domain it will be the same configuration of users rights ?
