Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 2
Domain Services for Windows
DSFW 1.1


A provisioned DSFW user was moved out of the domain, the gidNumber and primaryGroupID where changed to something other than that of the Domain Users group, DSFW removed then re-installed back into the tree, and then the user was moved back into the domain.
A 6090 error has been reported in this very rare situations.

The provision.log shows the following:

ldap_modify: Server is unwilling to perform (53)
additional info: NDS error: Security Accounts Manager validation failed (-6090)

In iManager go to the user in question.  In the General tab click on the "other" tab.

Edit the primaryGroupID and change the value to 513.
Edit the gidNumber and change the value to 1049089.

Click apply and move the user.
