"The account used is a computer account..." Error When Setting AD Home Directory (Doc ID 2098228.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Identity Manager Connector - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

AD home directory not getting set even if one provides proper values like "\\server01\home01\<username>" in the AD Application form.

Even though the account used is a user account with all the necessary privileges and successfully able to create a directory directly on the AD machine using that user account, the following error is seen:


In lookup Lookup.Configuration.ActiveDirectory value of CreateHomeDirectory is set to yes.
