    Virtual Center 4 error

    JESX35 Enthusiast

       

      Hello all,

       

       

      Just wondering if anyone has seen this before or could point me in the right direction.

       

       

      We have a Virtual Center 4 systems installed and everything runs fine however it keeps giving the following error every few min the event logs:

       

       

       

       

       

      {size:2}{color:#000000}{color}{size}Active Directory Web Services encountered an error while reading the settings for the specified Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services instance. Active Directory Web Services will retry this operation periodically. In the mean time, this instance will be ignored.+ + Instance name: ADAM_VMwareVCMSDS

       

       

      Active Directory Lightweight Servers are not installed as a role other then what vCenter put in.

       

       

      Any help would be greatly appricated.

              Hey,

               

               

               

              Did you have any luck finding a resolution or any work arounds?

               

               

              I think I found a log file somewhere that mentioned access denied but haven't been able to find a solution?

               

               

               

              What version of Windows are you running your vCenter on ? and did you ever have leight weight directory services installed ?

                Well I picked up my handy shovel this afternoon and did some serious digging.

                 

                I think this error is happening for 1 of 2 reasons which I cannot test tonight, but i think its either

                 

                 

                 

                1.)  vCenter thinks there is a prious vCenter install on the system and "thinks" it is in linked mode, how to change this back will be interesting or

                 

                 

                 

                2.)  I found this little snippet

                 

                 

                "Credentials with Log on as service privileges on the system where the Guided Consolidation server is

                installed must be provided at the time of installation. If Active Directory is deployed on your network,

                the provided credentials must also have sufficient privileges to query the Active Directory database." 

                 

                 

                I know my services do run as local system even tho I don't have Guided Consolidation server running it could be it is erroring out on AD permissions.  I'm going to try changing the service account and see if it helps any.

                 

                 

                 

                3.)  Neither of these works and I'm back at the start

                  I am going to try #2 and see how it goes... I will report back

                    I didn't have much luck with changnig the account logon, I even changed the AD web services account and had the same problem.  Did you have any luck with it ?

                     

                    I also found this information on Microsoft site:

                     

                    "Active Directory Web Services (ADWS) in Windows Server 2008 R2 is a new Windows service that provides a Web service interface to Active Directory domains, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instances, and Active Directory Database Mounting Tool instances that are running on the same Windows Server 2008 R2 server as ADWS. If the ADWS service on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server is stopped or disabled, client applications, such as the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell or the Active Directory Administrative Center will not be able to access or manage any directory service instances that are running on this server."

                     

                    This is a new feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 and by the sounds of it isn't required.  I have stopped the service for the time being and are currently monitoring it as I don't belive vCenter needs to leverage Active Directory module for PowerShell or the AD Administrative Center.  I will let you know if it causes any problems while stopped.

                      I didn't have any luck changing that account either... and still getting the same messages in the event log every 1 minute.

                        I am opening a ticket with VMWARE right now... I will let you know.

                            OK, after talkg to Josh (VmWare) He says it's a known warning... Windows 2008 R2 is not supported in Vcenter 4.0 YET and Microsoft has it's new ADAM service in 2008R2 thing... It looks like Windows doesn't like another ADAM service running ...

                             

                             

                             

                             

                             

                            I turned off that ADAM VMWARE service and start getting a lot of errors... so I left it ON and wait until 4.0 Update 1 (commiing soon) to see if Windows 2008R2 is supported ...

                             

                             

                             

                             

                             

                            I will keep you posted if I find anything

                              I have disabled the Active Directory Web Services for the time being and it hasn't generated any errors.  the VMware instance of ADAM hasn't given any errors either as of yet.  Its only been a few hours so I will keep you posted on my findings.

                                  just curious how things are working out for you guys? I am receiving the same error as I have vcenter running on Windows 2008 R2.....and I have updated to ESX 4 Update 1, but the error persists. I have since disabled the AD web services for the time being, but curious if anyone has any new info.

                                    Still the same thing for me, I currently just have that service turned off and everything is running just fine.  Still waiting to see if any new news come out from Update 1 to reslove this.
