Hi All

This is a very strange issue. We had enabled Unix AD LDAP integration against our Windows Domain: abc.com.
We had two locations, the following information is how did I install Unix AD LDAP for windows Domain authentication.

** Primary DC (FSMO owner of domain): master.abc.com (located in the europe office): Installed "Identity Management for Unix" in this DC
** two DCs: dc1.abc.com, dc2.abc.com (located in the sydney office)
** some LDAP configuration in Unix.

Everything was working fine, However, few weeks ago, When I tried to manage Unix Attributes tab in the ADUC of two DCs in Sydney office, It is reporting invalid information, and I cannot do anything in the Unix Attributes tab. However, I can configure Unix Attributes tab in master.abc.com, But it doesn't work whatever changes I made.

Anyone knows?

Thanks for your help.

If memory serves, you have to install the Unix roles on all the DCs you want to interact with Unix, not just your FSMO server.

Identity Management for Unix is only can be installed into FSMO server!
