NT Account Invalid RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, all

    I encountered an issue when defining a new resource on Project Server 2010 from the Active Directory: "NT Account Invalid". This is on a new Production environment which we just migrated to, with SP1 + August 2011 CU.

    There are some puzzling issues:

    1. The resource that I'm trying to import from the AD is quite new in the organization. However, users that exist for a while now on the AD are being able to be imported to the Project Server.

    2. As I said above, I migrated to that environment a couple of weeks ago; this was done from an environment that neither SP1 nor any CU was installed. On that non SP environment the specific resources is being able to be imported from the AD without getting "NT Account Invalid" notification.

    One would think that if a resource can be imported to one environment, it would be able to be imported to another environment on the same organization.

    We tried restarting the AD synchronization on the SharePoint central administration, but as you may guess, it didn’t make any difference.

    I would appreciate any comment.

    Thanks,

    Y.

  • Hi, guys

    Just to update you regarding my findings:

    The "NT Account Invalid" notification is originated from the user's definition in the Active Directory - that user is disabled. Once enabling that user in the AD, he can be imported to the Project Server.

    That inactive user could be imported to my non SP1 environment; however, SP1 on server side does not enable to import inactive AD users.
