What action are you performing when this error occurs?

Show 2 Share
10 |10000 characters needed characters left characters exceeded

I am experiencing this error also and it happens when in log on to the CMC and navigate as follows

CMC Home > Authentication

when you click on Windows AD (the windows AD authentication setup screen) then the error message comes up. The pages for the other authentication methods opens just fine.

I am looking forward to the solution


Is part of all of your deployment installed on unix or linux? The AD auth plugin is only accessible if all CMS's are installed on windows. Other than that it would sound like a corruption issue either the installation or the CMS DB is not setup correctly
