Hi, I am trying to configure the VSI share and I am not able to find the Login_VSI_TS group that is on the Active Directory Server. The file share server is in the same network as the active directory server. What might I be doing wrong? Please advise. Below are some details of my setup so far :

I have 3 servers. On one of them, I have created a domain and installed active directory components and created the users as directed in the tutorial.

On the second server, I am trying to configure the vsi share. This server is on the same network as the first server but is not able to find the Login_VSI_TS.

Thanks.

Hi VSU,

On the first server, you say; created the users as directed in the tutorial.

- Did you run the AD-setup?
The AD-setup is part of the installation package download.

- If you open the Active Directory Users/Computers
Do you see the Login_VSI OU? If so, does it has the following;

1, Computers
2, Users
2.1, Launcher
2.2, Target

In the root of the OU there must be the Login_VSI_TS group (see attached file) within this group (properties) the desired Login_VSI users are members.

Eventually you can add 'Everyone' with full access (NTFS permissions), this is not what I suggest though. We want to make sure that the VSI AD-Setup has ran properly and that the VSI users logging on running the desired script for the testing part.

Regards,

Omar

Hi Omar, the active directory is installed fine on the server. On that server, I can see the Login_VSI OU. I can also see the computers, users, launcher, target and everything under it. i can also see the Login_VSI_TS. But the problem is while cpnfiguring the VSI share. I am setting a VSI share on a different server that is in the same network as the active directory server. While configuring the VSI share, we need to give read/write access to the Login_vsi_ts right? But I am not able to find the Login_vsi_ts on the server on which I am configuring VSI share even though the 2 servers are on the same network. Thanks.

Vsuryana,

Is the server that host the file share joined to the domain?

No it is not joined to the domain. When I try to join it, it gives me a DNS lookup error. Should I join the 2nd server to the domain? Thanks.

Vsuryana,

Yes the server needs to be domain joined. Regarding the DNS error i suggest you look into this Microsoft article: social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/conten...-error-messages.aspx
