we have in the last months from time to time a sync-problem with our Active Directory and Confluence. After reviewing our config, I noticed what we use only one of our Domain-Controller in the following way: "ldap.url": "ldaps://<Name of the DC>.<our FQDM>:636"
If this DC doesn't responde, because of technical reasons, our Confluence don't sync anymore and we get appropriate log-entries.
After consulting our Server-guys, they make the suggestion only use the FQDM of our domain to have a list of DCs for fallback ao a other instance of our AD, but my colleagues tell me, that Confluence only use the first entry in the list of DCs - so it does not matter if you use the FQDM.
My question is: Is that true? Use Confluence, despite specification of the FQDM, only the first server in the list?
This is how we set it up. Let's say for example the FQDN for our domain controllers are dc01.domain.dom and dc02.domain.dom. In the Server Settings -> Hostname field we would just put in domain.dom. That way it is not tied to a specific domain controller.
