FREENAS 9.3 - Can't join AD

Hi everyone. I'm going crazy trying to join my FREENAS server to windows 2008 AD service. I've tried almost everything with no luck. I always get this message:
Unable to find domain controllers for innovateperu.local.
and the log shows:  
FreeNAS_ActiveDirectory_Base.get_SRV_records: no SRV records for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.innovateperu.local found, fail!
I have attached some screenshots of my FREENAS configuration

PS.
My local domain is: innovateperu.local

Check your Active Directory DNS zones to make sure the MSDCS folder/Forward Lookup Zone is there and that there is a valid SRV record under _TCP.DC folder.

Have you considered upgrading to the latest stable release (9.10.1 has probably been out for a few months now).

There are quite a few AD joining bugs in 9.3.

Thx for your replies. I have tried host -a _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.innovateperu.local. I get response...
About migrating version. This server is in production environment and holds my VM so I cannot restart it. Is there any other approach?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

In your first screenshot enable verbose logging. This will log under /var/logs/messages. Does anything come up with errors? What happens if you run:

host -t srv _ldap._tcp.innovateperu.local

Open in new window


Also have a look at their troubleshooting KB on not being able to join the domain.

https://doc.freenas.org/9.3/freenas_directoryservice.html#if-the-system-will-not-join-the-domain

I would also look at spinning up 2 new VM's. 1 running FreeNAS 9.3 and 1 running the latest release. Can either of these join the domain?

See the attached image for results from host command.
By the way I did try what FreeNAS suggests.

Yeah, I would definitely try spin up a new VM to test joining a newer version to your AD environment. I can only assume its some sort of bug in FreeNAS 9.3.

I would suggest you to create a computer object with "FREENAS" name in some OU and on this OU give create computer object object permissions to FREENAS computer object. I think this will work.

freenas as a computer object exists from the beginning. That was the first thing I did when trying to join it to my domain

However as mentioned earlier, did you add permissions on the OU where FREENAS computer object exists.

Thank you all for your help. I could finally join my domain. You would laugh if I told u that the computer object "FREENAS" was disabled in my AD! lol. After enabling it again it could join the AD with no prob.
