Problems with Active Directory authentification


Our Crystal Report server is down due to the errors below.

This all started because we tried to add a user who was included in an AD security group but CMC couldnu2019t find the object or group. Then we tried to add a security group because our security groups had since changed from the ones that were in the CMC but it said that we needed to delete the existing security groups. This is when we started receiving the errors below. We are running Crystal Report Server XIR2.

We also deactivated Windows AD in CMC. We can no longer turn Windows AD back on which means that none of our useru2019s can log back in.

This error occurs when you try to delete one of the mapped groups:

Error Updatng Windows AD authentication properties: Sorry, you do not have the right to 'Delete objects' (id - 22) for 'groupname' (id - 1178). Please contact your system or permissions administrator if you require this right.

This error occurs when we try to turn the Windows AD back on:

Error updating Windows AD authentication properties: Active Directory Authentication failed to verify the mapped groups. If the problem persists, please delete and re-map into Business Objects Enterprise all currently mapped groups.
