NetIQ Directory & Resource Administrator 8.7.x


When running the DRA command line ea.exe and you get this error message (Error Creating the IDRARuleHelperFactory.80040154) the error is because the DLL file needs to be re-registered via a 32bit command prompt.


Run this command to register the DLL in a 32bit command prompt on the DRA server or client machine with the error message.

DLL File path:
\Programs Files (x86)\NetIQ\DRA\ NetIQ.DRA.RuleHelperFactory.dll

Command to register DLL file:
c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe  NetIQ.DRA.RuleHelperFactory.dll

Once the DLL is register the DRA command line ea.exe should work with no error messages.
