fsct prepare server gives error with non-windows server in a domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All
    Getting an error message "Error logging on user <user>".
    Tried using the following links:
    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/fsct/thread/ba2a43b3-6bb6-4234-a38b-5b3b608f5434
    I am using a windows vista client and the Domain controller is win2k3 server. The non-windows server is a netapp filer.

    Thanks,
    JN

  • Hello,

    I am not sure about the exact issue you're facing but all I can say is that I have been regularely experiencing problems using "fsct prepare" in workgroup or non-MS NAS if the command is executed from a 2008/Vista/Seven/R2 using elevation. I solved by modifying UAC configuration as described there: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951016
    Hope it helps a bit.

  • Where are you running the prepare server command from?
    what is the command you run?
    Do you see the user have been created in the domain?

  • I am running the prepare server command from the elevated command prompt on the controller PC.
    The command I used "

    fsct prepare server /clients <client1,client2,...> /password <password> /users <number of users> /domain <domain name> /volumes \\<server name>\<share> /workload <workload name> /create_only_fileset 

     

    The users have been created in the domain. I am able to login using these new user accounts.

  • Is your controller joined to the domain? Are you able to log on as one of fsct users on the controller? If so, are you able to access \\<your_server>\fsroot1 and so on as that user?

  • Yes. I am able to access \\<your_server>\fsroot1 from the controller PC.

  • The root cause of this problem was a typo in the username used.
