IIS FTP Isolate Users x AD User Login RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've configured a FTP Site in my IIS with "Isolate Users - User name directory (disable global virtual directories)".

    This service is using Active Directory Domain Users(installed in other server) to log in in each user isolate folder and it's working well. Take a look:

    - Server 1 has a IIS FTP configured

    - Server 2 has a Active Directory configured

    However, I've a big curiosity, if my AD Server on Server 2 falls, my FTP Server on Server 1 will be inaccessible once it uses the AD Users to authentication?

    So, I've tested it and after shut off my AD server it kept working...??????????????? I can't understand how it still accessing the FTP using all any users even when the AD Server is OFF....???

    Please, could someone explain me that?

    Many Thanks \ Best Regards,

    Marco Antonio Correa Alves.
