However I added TA-DomainController-NT6 and enable on Splunk Search Head (SH?). But still get error above.

Just to make this post more complete, @schultet found their solution provided by @dolejh76 which was to make sure the msad index was set to be searched by default. This was done by going to:

Settings > Access Controls > Roles > winfra-admin > Scroll down to "Indexes searched by default" and add the appropriate indexes. (msad in this case)
