Currently we can add only one AD, i strongly guess that we should have the ability to define a minimum of two Active directory domain controllers. for HA purpose.

Yes, our old NetApp had a setting for preferred DCs so you could add the ones from the right AD site.
Nutanix should do something similar and I propose that it should be a site-name from AD.

That way the DCs could be retrieved by a simple DNS query 

nslookup -type=A dc.SITENAME._sites
nslookup -type=A dc.SITENAME._sites.example.com

Even modern QNAP NAS supports a backup Domaincontroller for redundancy but I would like to have that more dynamically with the automatic DNS solution above.
