not able to activate an inactive resource in PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I am trying to activate an Inactive resource in PWA 2010 getting the following error

    •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.

    Do I need to add or activate that Resource in AD?

  • Hi Project Help,

    If you try to activate a user in Project Server, this user must have a valide AD account. Otherwise you'll receive this error message since Project Server checks that the account is valid while saving the user.

    If there is no valid AD account, then it might just be a resource (like a generic resource) and not a user who will connect to the system.


    Hope this helps,
