ADWS errors in event log RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have just installed a fresh build of windows 2008 r2, joined domain, and the installed UAG. As soon as i have rebooted after installing UAG i see lots of errors in the AD Web Services event viewer.

    The errors are
    Event ID 1202
    This computeer is now hosting the specified directory instance, but the AD web service could not service it. ADWS will retry this operation periodically.
    Directory instance NTDS, LDAP port 389, SSL Port 636

    Anyone able to help?

  • I've seen a case where this was caused by a corrupt Secedit.sdb, and rebuilding them helped.

    These are the steps for this:

    1. Backup these files first:

    2. Delete %SystemRoot%\Security\database\secedit.sdb

    3. Rename winlogon.log to winlogon.old.

    4. Restart the machine.

    5. Run gpupdate /force. This will create a new security.sdb and winlogon.log.
