    When trying to connect to another forest DC I get the following error message: failed-connection error code 1355

     

    I temp disabled the firewall service on the dc, I'm able to authenticate, but I cannot get the containers in the other forest

    1355 translates to ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN and is usually related to a DNS problem. You need to make sure that you've got DNS setup correctly such that you can correctly resolve the SRV records in the other forest.

    In the MIIS Reskit, you can find a tool called MIISDCInfo.

    You can use this tool to troubleshoot LDAP ping related issues.

     

    When you configure an ADMA, ILM sends such a LDAP ping to the network in an attempt to locate a DC for the configured forest.

     

    A miss configured DNS configuration is one possible problem for a failing LDAP ping.

    Another one is a firewall that blocks certain ports – including the MSRPC port.

     

    What you can try to get around the issue if it is firewall related, is to enter the IP address of a target DC as forest and domain name instead of the related string values.

     

    In case of already configured MAs, you can also configure preferred DCs in form of IP addresses.

     

    I hope this helps.

     

     

    Cheers,

  • Hi,

    we can do this in two ways 

    1)Add the host name and ip addres of the targe doman controller in the host entry of the ILM server, 

    the host file is located at "c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" this will resolve the domain controller name of the target domain.

    2) Add the  dns server ip address of the target  doamin controller in the advance TCP/IP settings.

  • This will not help you in case of error 1355 since the error means "domain not found" and not  "DC not found"...
