Directory and Resource Administrator 6.60

The Not a member of field in the Directory and Resource Administrator 6.6 MMC interface does not display the available groups to which a user may be added.


It is possible to set the properties for the My ActiveViews snap-in node to sort the object filters by domain name when viewing a list of the objects of a given type.  When using the domain name to display the list of objects, the view in the MMC interface can be split to display the object name at the top, the groups the object is currently a member of on the lower left, and the groups to which the Assistant Admin may add the object to on the right.

In DRA 6.6, the list of groups to which the object may be added is blank.


This issue occurs because of an error in the code that mistakenly sets the filter criteria to a specification not recognized by the provider in DRA responsible for enumerating these lists.  Because the specification is not recognized, no objects match the criteria and the resulting list contains no groups.


Hotfix 24326 ensures the MMC interface correctly lists account objects when you perform the following tasks:

  • You define an ActiveView to include objects as source objects only. You can set the MMC interface to not display these objects in the associated ActiveView.
  • You select a user account or contact in an ActiveView. If you enabled domain nodes and are selecting a user account or contact from a specific domain, the MMC interface should display all available groups in the secondary list of the results pane.

If you want to control whether an Assistant Admin can view source objects in an ActiveView, apply this hotfix. If your Assistant Admins use secondary lists to manage group memberships, apply this hotfix.

To install this hotfix, run the DRA66000_Hotfix24326.exe file on each computer where you installed the Web component. By default, the setup program installs the Web component on the Administration server computer.

This hotfix modifies the following files on the Administration server computer:

  • lib\js\DRAListUtility.js
  • scripts\ContactMain.js
  • scripts\UserMain.js

By default, these files are located in the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\DRAWeb\Admin\lib\js\custom directory.

This issue is resolved in Directory and Resource Administrator 7.0 and later.
