Unable to add VCSA 6.5 to Domain

Hi We have done an update of our VCSa to 6.5 from 6 but we are unable to add it to or Domain. We get the following error:

The "Join active directory" operation failed for the entity with the following error message.

Idm client exception: Error trying to join AD, error code [31], user [xxxxxx], domain [xxxxxxxx], orgUnit [OU=Servers,OU=Resources,DC=xxxxx,DC=xxxx,DC=xx]

I have checked the SMB versions are enabled on our 2012 R2 Domain Controllers but I am still unable to add it.  I have also tried adding from the CLI and this too fails. Is anyone able to help me?

Thanks

Hi, I have checked that article and confirmed that SMBv1 is running on the 2012 R2 Domain Controllers. We have rebuild the VCentre 3 times now as well as putting it on different hosts within the cluster and we still cannot add it to the domain.

Using the CLI we get this error: Error: ERROR_GEN_FAILURE [code 0x0000001f]

Thanks

Do you set a timeserver on the vcenter to sync the time?

Could you post the ssoAdminServer.log

i have the same issue. I verified SMB1, hostname and DNS on the VCSA. Here is what ssoAdminServer.log gives when it fails:

Hi,

I'm facing the same issue, with vcsa 6.5U2.

Tried to activate SMBv2 within the vcsa, enable SMBv1 within the DC but still getting the same error.

Error shown when I try to join the domain using the command line :

---> Error: ERROR_GEN_FAILURE [code 0x0000001f]

If I try the same using the web client I get the error code 31.

Any suggestion ?

Thank you

Please share output of the below command:

/opt/likewise/bin/lwregshell list_values '[HKEY_THIS_MACHINE\Services\lwio\Parameters\Drivers\rdr]'

Is SMB1 disabled on DC?

Okay SMB2 version is enabled on vCSA as well. Can you restart likewise agent service and add vCSA to domain.

/opt/likewise/bin/lwsm restart lwio

I did it already but still have the same error.

I will put below the resolution it might help someone else :

1. backup the DC

2. Navigate to the following registry location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer

Change  the value for DependOnService from "SamSS Srv2" to "SamSS Srv".

KnowledgeBase: ERROR_GEN_FAILURE [0x0000001f] when attempting to join VMware vCenter Server Applianc...

3. Reboot the DC

==> Till now I still have the same issue

4. Deactivate windows firewall within the DC

5. Deactivate AV within the DC

6. Join the domain

7. Put back the value of DependOnService to "SamSS Srv2"

8. Reboot once again the DC
