Moving vSphere Server and SQL Database... Help Please!


Today we've moved our vCenter Server and also moved our SQL Database.

We provisioned a new Server 2008R2 server and install vCenter 4.1 and also moved our VMware DB which all went well.

We followed the VMware guide on moving the AD LDS instance from server1 to server2.

We are now getting the error event ID 2536

The directory server has failed to update the AD LDS serviceConnectionPoint object in Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services. This operation will be retried.

Additional Data

SCP object DN:


Error value:

5 Access is denied.

Server error:

00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150A48, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

Internal ID:


AD LDS service account:

I'm guessing there is a remanance in the AD LDS database still referencing the old vCenter server, how is it possible to get the AD LDS instance to "forget" about the old server and only need the new server.
