Re: Unity 4.03 Add Subscriber Problem (Not shown on SA page but
Yes, what you're seeing is expected behavior.
When you create or import a user from AD we stamp that user in AD as being owned by the Unity server by writing the Unity server's primary location object ID value onto the ciscoECSBULocationObjectID properly in AD (this is one of the properties we add to the schema). All users in AD that have a value here will not be allowed to be imported into a Unity server to avoid a problem where multiple Unity servers in the same directory "fight" over users.
If you have delted those users in the Unity SA first, those properties would have been cleared off and you could import them again. I'm guessing you just removed the Unity server from the site without doing a proper uninstall first (the uninstall tool will remove these properties from subscribers as well).
You can clean those properties using the Global Subscriber Manager tool found in the tools deopot on your desktop. When you launch it, right click on the Unity server name in the tree on the left and select "import user". Then select the "Users" container (I assume this is where you're users are in AD, if not navigate to the right folder) - you should see all your users there regardless of if they're subscribers or not. You can then select your AAA, BBB and CCC users and right click on them - the 'Remove subscriber properties" option will be there - once you do that you can then import them either right here in the GSM tool or back in the SA if you prefer (both do the same thing).

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
