    I’m having a problem looking up information from my Active Directory from one of my servers in my domain.

    This is my setup:
    * 1 server acting as DNS and AD server for domain labosec.intra
    * 1 server acting as Virtual Infrastructure server

    The VI server has successfully joined the domain and can perform DNS lookups without problem. However, when I try to login in my Virtual Center using domain accounts, this doesn’t work.

    After some troubleshooting, I found out the following:
    * when I go to the permissions settings of the VC client and try to lookup domain information (such as groups and users), this always fails (“error accessing directory”)
    * when I try testing the AD access by configuring terminal services access on the VI server, I never get any lookup results, the following screen keeps coming back (user is “frcre”):


    So, it looks like the Windows server can’t perform the lookup. However, I have another server (a Juniper SSL appliance) configured for Active Directory authentication, and this authentication succeeds.

    I have not tested with another Windows server yet.

    Also, I’m getting the following errors in my event viewer on the AD server:





    Could these be part of the problem?

    How can I further troubleshoot this problem?
