Active Directory Computers and Users error in MS Lab RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am trying to add a computer to a Group called ServerGroup as shown. I simply try to add Server01 to the group but I get a "Name not Forund" error.

    I am doing this a Lab environment. Here are some of the steps taken.

    Exercise 15.2 Creating a Managed Service Account
    Overview During this exercise, you create and deploy a Managed Service
    Account (MSA).
    Mindset Rather than manually changing the account password and the
    password for the service or application, you can use the Managed
    Service Account (MSA) where the password will automatically change
    on a regular basis.
    Completion time 25 minutes
    1. On RWDC01, using Server Manager, click Tools > Active Directory Users and
    Computers, if needed.
    2. In Active Directory Users and Computers, right-click the Computers container and
    choose New > Group. For the Group name, type ServerGroup and click OK.
    3. In the Computers container, right-click ServerGroup and then click Properties.
    4. When the Properties dialog box opens, click the Members tab

    5. Click Add. In the text box, type Server01.
    6. Click Object Types, select Computers, and then click OK twice.
    7. Click OK to close the ServerGroup Properties dialog box. 

    I am kinda at a loss as I cant simply add Server01 to my serverGroup??

    Any help, much appreciated

  • Hi,

    When you clicked 'Add' in step (5) when the dialog box opens did you select 'Computers' under the 'Select this object type' section?

  • Thank you for your response. i believe I didnt sign in with the domain name on the other networked computer. Reloading some stuff into VM's now to do some testing and verify that problem. But I did have computers selected in objects, just now in that screen shot but the round I was do it before.

    Thank you
