We have an old Archiver server that reached end of life at least 4-5 years ago, and it's on an unsupported Windows Server OS. We've decided to take it off the network and connect directly to an AD DC with a crossover cable.

After taking the DC and GFI servers of the network, seizing the FSMO roles, installing a network crossover cable and pointing DNS on the GFI server to the DC, I can get authenticated to the GFI server but not to the app. However, I can put the GFI server back on the network, and GFI authenticates ok. Also, when the two servers are connected back-to-back, I can change a password for the domain and log back into the GFI server (Windows login) with the new password but not to GFI. Something is broken, but I don't know what. has anyone else tried this? Any ideas? Thanks

GFI Archiver should utilize the same method of authenticating to the Active Directory as your server does.

What to check:
1) Ensure that your DNS is set to the AD DNS instance
2) Try specifying the domain in the login prompt as part of the username domain\user or user@domain
3) Enable logging and check what ADAAuthenticaiton outputs.

Thanks, Ian. I've tried 1, so I'll give 2 a shot. I don't need to be logged into GFI to enable logging, correct? Thanks for your time.

TO enable logging you can do so from the server. Refer to https://support.archiver.gfi.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015219 719
