Web login to Unity

I've been getting this for the past week...<br><br>Your Windows Domain Account [...] is not associated with a Unity Subscriber.<br>You cannot access the ActiveAssistant web pages.<br>Please see your system administrator for more details. <br><br>Started happening sometime in the past 10 days. Server has been restarted. Interestingly enough it is almost exactly 1 year since implementation. Is is possible we actually installed a demo copy by mistake? Licensing was set to unlimited. Does the bitlock have some sort of expiry date associated with it?<br>We had three "administrative" COS accounts and none of them work any longer.<br><br>Norm Cook<br>Gibson Petroleum Company Limited

Re: Web login to Unity

No, there's no timeout on the demo version (although that'd be nice for try-before-you-buy type requests I get a lot).

Can you log in to the SA on the local Unity server with the "manual authentication" enabled in IE to ensure there's no goofy DNS issue biting you here?

Re: Web login to Unity

Not quite sure what you mean. I did go to the unity server and start System Admin. Same behaviour. In IE, I went to Tools > Internet Options > Security > local intranet > Custom Settings and selected Prompt for user name and password. I tried my Exchange Admin account as well as my subscriber account. No luck. I also tried logging into Win2K as local administrator and Exchange Administrator and repeated above. Same behaviour.

Re: Web login to Unity

well, that error means it's failing before we event get to the COS check... the token we're gettign back is not finding a mail user in Exchange properly most likely. Most often this has to do with credentials not matching due to a domain boundary or a proxy server getting in the way or the like. If you've manually logged in on the local Unity server and provided the domain\login and password of a subscriber and it's STILL showing you that message, that's pretty odd indeed. I'd expect you to at least get the "your class of service doesn't allow access..." message.

Is the Example Administrator still in the system? Can you associate your NT account you log into the local Unity server with to that Exchange account? Wait 10 minutes and then try to log in with that guy again... if it's still coming up with the "you're not a subscriber" thing, something is going haywire further up stream from us (I'd start to suspect something like a proxy server or a DNS issue lurking under the covers).

Re: Web login to Unity

Example administrator Exchange account was still in Exchange. Associated it with my exchange admin account and still can't log in. There is no proxy or firewall between the Unity and Exchange mail server. They're on the same subnet and part of the same domain.

Re: Web login to Unity

well... DNS is the last issue I can think of off the top of my head. Unity needs to contact the DNS server whenever someone authenticates and if there's an issue there the login will fail. typically you'd see errors in the event log when this happened.

Beyond that all I can suggest is to try and investigate what changed in your environment about a week ago... Unity doesn't have a time out so we didn't just kick in a restrictive SA access on you out of the blue. Something changed somewhere external to us, it's just a matter of tracking it down.

Re: Web login to Unity

DNS appears to function normally. What in particular does Unity need to access the DNS server for when logging into the web admin on the actual unity server? Maybe there's a specific DNS record it's looking for? Is it using the FQDN? If not, the DNS domain on Unity was set incorrectly, but it hasn't changed in the past year, so that's probably not the problem anyway. I can't reboot during the day to correct the domain name, but will attempt to do so this weekend.

Re: Web login to Unity

I am getting the same error at my customer. They did make some changes to DNS and moved some servers around. Unity does seem to be able to get to everything with DNS. The error in the event log associated with this issue is:

Gateway: The call to Directory::FindByDomainAndName failed with [0x800706BA] for the NT account: [Doman\EXADMIN]

and:

Gateway: Error [0x800706BA] retrieving mailboxes associated with NT account : [Domain\EXADMIN]

Thanks

Re: Web login to Unity

Would changing my NT PDC's IP address & Computer Name affect this? That did change.

Re: Web login to Unity

One more piece of info that may or not be useful...
When using a Netscape browser (not on Unity server), I get:

HTTP 401.2 - Unauthorized: Logon failed due to server configuration
Internet Information Services
