ACS 5-1-0-44-3 and AD Intergration

Unanswered Question
Jul 9th, 2010


Just installed the above version of ACS as an appliance on an ESX 4.0.0. Server.

I am trying to add this to our domain using AD Identity Store

I enter in the domain name ( in FQDN not netbios format ) and enter in my admin username/password par and hit "Test Connection"  I get a succeful back.

When I try and save this I get the below message back :

Error while configuring Active Directory:Error while configuring Active Directory: Using writable domain controller: <dcname>NetBuf::chkEOB -

Attempt to access out of buffer capacity!! due to unexpected configuration or network error.  Please try the --verbose option or run 'asinfo --diag' to

diagnose the problem.Join to <domainname>,zone 'null' failed.

We have 3 DCs and have had all of them being used in the message above.  The DC's are Windows 2003 SP2 and the username I am using has sufficient rights to add machines to the domain

The ACS server is on the same ip subnet as the 3 DCs.  The ACS servers time is synchronized with the same time source as the 3 DCs

Any help would be appreciated.



I have this problem too.
