We are getting the following error message on our Small Business Server 2003 running Active Directory
"Windows cannot create the new object because:
the directory service was unable to allocate a relative identifier"
This happens when I try to create a new username for the domain.
I am able to delete or disable users but am unable to create new ones.
I have already used netdom query fsmo. The results of this command are that the server for all items is the server I am trying to add the user on.
The same thing happens when I try to create a user without an exchange mailbox.
We are running exchange server 2003 on the same server.
if the articles posted from Wilson didn't help please give some more info about your environment, total amount of DCs in the domain and how they are located. Also describe if you have done a restore from backup or image after a crash?
