      Description

      Problem Definition

      Bitbucket Server / Data Center does not currently support connecting to load-balanced AD servers.

      Synchronising between AD servers is not supported. Microsoft Active Directory does not replicate the uSNChanged attribute across instances. For that reason, we do not support connecting to different AD servers for synchronisation.

      Many companies have a single DNS entry (mydomain.mycompany.com) that points to a load balancer that directs traffic to one of many directory servers. (Or, some companies might use DNS round robin.) However, neither the use of DNS round robin nor use of an actual load balancer is supported by Bitbucket – both approaches to load balancing direct traffic to different servers, which would lead to the synchronization of a not replicated uSNChanged attribute.
      Currently, Bitbucket only supports connecting to a single directory server, not different (load-balanced) servers.

      Suggested Solution

      Add support for load-balanced LDAP/AD.

      Note

      This is dependent on CWD-2783

      Workaround

      1. Switch to a delegated user directory
      2. Connect to a single LDAP server
