Error disabling Prevent Active Directory synchronization for users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm preparing my Project Server 2010 for an upgrade to PS 2013. One of the steps per this TechNet article is to verify that the "Prevent Active Directory synchronization for this user" option is disabled for all users. There are two resources that are no longer with the company that have this checked and when I try to uncheck it and save I get the error:

    "The resource could not be saved due to the following reasons: The NT account specified is invalid. Check the spelling of the user name, verify that a valid domain name was included, and check that a duplicate domain was not used."

    Any ideas of how to uncheck this for people that are no longer in Active Directory?

  • Thanks for the reply. They are already set to inactive. Couldn't delete them if I wanted as they are both tied to a bunch of old projects.  Can I just move on with them set to inactive but with the prevent AD sync still checked?

  • I think yes, you can. I would strongly recommend to test the outcome in development or test environment by performing a dry run.

  • Yeah, I'm running all this in my test environment first. I finished the upgrade and having them inactive but with the prevent AD sync still checked didn't give me any errors. Everything looks great! Thanks Hrishi!
