Failure Activate Conferencing Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the wizard of OCS 07 Beta 1.

    I've been following all steps, however it fails at end.

    Activate Web Conferencing Server Log: LC Web Conferencing Server[2007_05_02][13_03_17]_Activate.html

    Sniplet from Server[2007_05_02][13_03_17]_Activate.html:

    Action Information:
    Create Domain Service Account Windows 2000 Native Mode Domain: True
    Global Container DN: CN=System,DC=mydomain,DC=no
    Global Container Domain DC: MYDC.mydomain.no
    Domain DC: MYDC.mydomain.no
    Forest GC: DC2.external.mydomain.no
    Group Domain: mydomain.no

    Execution Result: Failure [0x8007052E] Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

    What do I do now? I'm using the mydomain\administrator account when running this. I've also tried rejoining the computer to the mydomain, however no change in execution result.

    I wonder why the forest is detected as a trusted external.mydomain.no forest? The external.mydomain.no is a child domain of mydomain.no, and DC2 is NOT the GC of the mydomain.no.

  • okay sorry. seemed to me that the OU belonged to a site which was not configured, thus it was present in the external site. i moved my computer object to the computers site and now it worked.
