Unable to See Domain Users in Windows Admin Center for File Shares

Copper Contributor

Hello everyone,

I’m currently experiencing an issue with Windows Admin Center where I cannot see domain users when trying to create file shares and set permissions. Here are the details:


• Windows Server 2022 with all the latest updates.
• Hyper-V for virtualization.
• Windows Admin Center installed on srv-admincenter.
• Domain Controller on srv-dc with DNS configured correctly.
• File Server on srv-data with iSCSI storage.


• When using Windows Admin Center to manage file shares on srv-data, only local users are displayed. Domain users do not appear.
• However, when I manage file shares directly on srv-data (through File Explorer or Server Manager), I can see and assign permissions to all domain users without any issues.
• The Active Directory extension is installed and up to date in Windows Admin Center.
