We have three Windows domain controllers in our AD domain. They are DC01, DC02, and DC03. We have Linux (RHEL5 and 6) servers in the domain as well. The Linux servers are working fine with AD. However, they are currently configured in krb.conf and krb5.conf to use only DC01 for AD domain controller. if DC01 is down, Linux servers cannot authenticate. How do we configure the Linux servers to use multiple domain controllers for AD, so if DC01 is down everything continues to work on the Linux side?
