Just a tip.....
 Do not buy any synology and expect  windows joining & support to last.
They have already taken the  samba packages and modified them to defeat support of 'non synology" versions.
Plus they have "nobbled" how the Synology can join into a distributed AD.

Add into that the totally unreliability related to  updates of group/user memberships with the windows AD, it's just not worth it.
(in some cases it requires a total reboot of the synology for the  rights to be applied, even after a forced sync )

Based on conversations with them in the past, I think they cannot be relied upon to support any serious attempts at corporate integration with windows AD.
