Error: 'Error changing the property 'LoginWorkstations' When Updating the Logon to Field Using the Command Line Interface


This error occurs when using the following syntax to update the Logon to field to allow a user account to logon to a specific workstation:

EA USER userid UPDATE WORKSTATIONS:\\machine_name

This problem only occurs when updating the Logon to field for a user account in a Windows 2000 domain.  To update this property, the value passed to the DRA server must be SafeArray.  This issue occurs because the CLI in DRA 6.50 does not pass the value in this way.


The Directory and Resource Administrator MMC can be used to modify the Logon to field to specify which workstations a user can logon to in a Windows 2000 domain. This issue has been corrected in  Directory and Resource Administrator version 6.60.

To correct this problem, please download the latest version of Directory and Resource Administrator.

Download - Directory and Resource Administrator (requires username and password)

Using the syntax to modify this field for a user account in an NT domain correctly updates the field.
