Invoke-QuickStart : Cannot find container specified RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks, 

    I am almost done setting up my FIM password reset tool, but I am stuck on almost final step,which is "QuickStart tool" synch with AD. PS command that I use looks like this:

    Invoke-QuickStart –Container “OU=test,OU=City,OU=Users,OU=Workstations,OU=branch Office,DC=Domain,DC=Net” –DatabaseName FIMpassword –DatabaseServer Server2 –ForefrontIdentityManagerServiceBaseAddress http://localhost:5725 -Forest Forest.Net –ActiveDirectoryManagementAgentCredential Domain\SA_USR –ForefrontIdentityManagerManagementAgentCredential Domain\SA_FIM_USR –RunInitialLoad $true –verbose

    And I get following error:

    VERBOSE: Verifying the forest and account
    VERBOSE: Verifying the container
    Invoke-QuickStart : Cannot find container 'OU=ARJS test,OU=Kaunas,OU=Users,OU=Workstations,OU=COWI Lithuania,DC=COWI,DC
    At line:1 char:18
    + Invoke-QuickStart <<<<  -Container "OU=test,OU=City,OU=Users,OU=Workstations,OU=branch Office,DC=Domain,DC=Net"

        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Invoke-QuickStart,Microsoft.IdentityManagement.QuickStart.InvokeQuickStart

    Can anyone help me with that? If you need any additional info, please let me know.

  • Hi. It seems that you have wrong container address. Please verify if you have: "OU=ARJS test,OU=Kaunas,OU=Users,OU=Workstations,OU=branch Office,DC=Domain,DC=Net" Please remember that it would be something like: Domain.Net ->Branch Office -->Workstations --->Users ... so you have specified that "ARJS test" is inside OU Kaunas, which is inside OU=Users, which is inside Workstations etc. Make sure all of them are OUs and not CNs (Org Units not Containters) If you wanted to specify more than one OU/CN at once - it is not possible using script. You have to specify only one container/OU now and later change it inside agent.
