Can ad_response monitor a Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC)?

Environment

ad_response

Resolution

The ad_response probe does not support monitoring Read Only DC. 
To gather metrics, the probe makes a modification to an unused LDAP attribute and then checks how long it takes that modification to show up/replicate. Fro this reason the probe requires the ability to write to the LDAP attributes as well as to read one.
