Installing MyWorkDrive on a Domain Controller

You are here:
< Back

MyWorkDrive support does not recommend installing and running MyWorkDrive server on a Windows Active Directory Domain Controller.   Typically MyWorkDrive should only be installed on a stand-alone single server domain or demo environment when installed on a domain controller.

Known incompatibilities exist when MyWorkDrive is run on a domain controller except in single server environments:

Shares must be located on the same Server as the MyWorkDrive server as default group policies prevent local logins on Domain Controllers causing file locking issues when shares are not located on the same server as the MyWorkDrive server across the network.

Permissions errors may occur when accessing shares on other domain member servers.
