fix

This issue is addressed in NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator and Exchange Administrator version 8.0 Hotfix 55584.

  • When you try to add a user account to multiple groups having the same name, but belonging to different organizational units (OUs), DRA only allows you to select one of these groups. This hotfix corrects this issue and allows you to add a user account to multiple groups.

Note: To create mailboxes and mail-enabled user accounts, you should install the System Admin Tools for Microsoft Exchange 2000 or later on the Administration server computer.

Note: This hotfix requires DRA version 8.0

To download and install this hotfix:

  1. Close all DRA user interfaces.
  2. Run the DRA80000_Hotfix55584.msi file on each computer where you installed an Account and Resource Management console or Delegation and Configuration console.

Hotfix 55584 modifies the following files on each computer where you installed an Account and Resource Management console or Delegation and Configuration console. By default, these files are located in the Program Files\NetIQ\DRA folder.

  • NetIQ.DRA.Console.Accounts.dll
