Resolution

fact
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.5

symptom
Removing the $McsAllowPreWin2k computer property from a custom power definition generates the following error: 'You do not have the power to create the computer [computer name] in the container [container name].'

symptom
If you create a custom power that delegates the ability to create computer accounts, but remove the $McsAllowPreWin2k computer property from the list of allowable properties, the Assistant Admin receives an error message when trying to create a computer account using the Create Computer wizard.

symptom
Error:  'You do not have the power to create the computer [computer name] in the container [container name].'

cause
This is a known issue you may experience when Assistant Admins attempt to create a computer account using a custom power that does not include the $McsAllowPreWin2k computer property. The $McsAllowPreWin2k computer property provides the ability for pre-Windows 2000 computers to use the computer account. If you create a custom power that does not include the $McsAllowPreWin2k computer property, Assistant Admins cannot successfully create computer accounts.

fix

NetIQ Corporation is currently reviewing this issue and determining how to address this issue in a future release.

The next release of DRA (version 8.0) is to include this functionality.
