Failed to create computer account for NTLM realm

Unanswered Question
Sep 16th, 2009


I'm getting error while trying to create NTLM realm on my device. Windows 2008 R2 Native is my domain functionality level.
Two days ago, I've managed to create NTLM realm in old Windows 2003 Native domain.
What could be the problem?

Error  — Computer Account creation failed.

Failure: Error while joining WSA onto server '' : Failed to join domain: Improperly formed account name

Assuming you are using Async OS 6.0 and above which support AD 2008.

Check to make sure the Ironport hostnam is not already in the "Computers" OU first before re-joining.

If you are still seeing erorrs, try to use:

username password

instead of:

DOMAIN\username password
