Another thing...

I have noticed that in the shares of the new server with ad-dc , when I
access the security tab of the shares, the windows explorer crashes.
This doesn't happen if I create a directory or file inside and access the
security tab.

Any information about what may be causing the crash?

I've looked at the logs and I don't see anything strange.
