A common Zentyal use case is to deploy Zentyal as an additional domain controller of an existing Windows® Server. This can be a long-term decision or a necessary step before fully migrating an existing Windows Server deployment to Zentyal.
Want to have a quick look on how this is done? Zentyal Team has published a series of official video tutorials on Zentyal Server as a native replacement to Microsoft Active Directory® (available in English and in Spanish). In this second tutorial you can see how to configure Zentyal as an additional domain controller of a Windows Domain:

In this 5-minute video you will find out what you need to take into account before joining Zentyal to a Windows domain, how to configure Zentyal as an additional DC and how to check that both servers are working together, synchronized bidirectionally and controlling and managing the domain.
