I have installed openssh on a 2008 domain controller. When I try to create the group or users I ge the following error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenSSH>bin\mkgroup -d mydomain>> C:\Program Files (x86)
Cannot get PDC, code = 2453

I need to set upa SFTP server for our use in this NOC.

    It seem Openssh use NT base domain PDC primary domain controller. Is there a way to run 2008 in compatibility mode ? as 2003 does.

    Configures in compatibility mode but the service will not start.

    Solution was to set up ssh on a 2003 server and map to the files on the 2008 share
