NetIQ Group Policy Administrator 4.6
The Show Domains option in GP Explorer node returns the error 'Unable to Enumerate the Forest's Domains' when attempting to enumerate the domains in a given forest.
The issue can be caused by a firewall blocking communication of the console back to the PDC Emulator.
This issue is addressed in NetIQ Group Policy Administrator version 4.6 Hotfix 46740.
Hotfix 46740 corrects the issue where The Show Domains option in GP Explorer returns the error Unable to Enumerate the Forest's Domains when attempting to enumerate the domains in a given forest. This hotfix allows you to identify a specific Domain Controller to use for enumerating the domains.
To install this hotfix, perform the following steps on each GPA console computer:
- Run GPA46000_Hotfix46740.exe.
- In the Windows Registry, add a new string value called PreferredDC to the registry key for each forest. This key is called
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FullArmor\FAZAM 2000\GP Explorer\Forests\NameOfForestwhere NameOfForest is the name of your specific forest. For example,
- Set the value of the string PreferredDC to the name of the domain controller you want to use for enumerating the domains. This does not need to be a fully qualified DNS name.
This hotfix modifies
faGPExpl.dll in the installation folders. By default, this folder is
\Program Files\NetIQ\Group Policy Administrator 4.6\Bin.
