Service Connection Point Errors in Event Log and Root Container Not Created

The directory server has failed to create the ADAM serviceConnectionPoint object in the Active Directory.
Event ID: 2537

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ADAM [_INSTANCE NAME_] General
Event Category: Internal Processing
Event ID: 2537
Date: 10/2/2007
Time: 2:00:50 PM
User: NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON
Computer: COMPUTER NAME
Description:
The directory server has failed to create the ADAM serviceConnectionPoint object in the Active Directory. This operation will be retried.


Internal ID:
3390387
ADAM service account:
NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE

User Action
If ADAM is running under a local service account, it will be unable to update the data in the Active Directory. Consider changing the ADAM service account to either NetworkService or a domain account.

If ADAM is running under a domain user account, make sure this account has sufficient rights to create the serviceConnectionPoint object.

ServiceConnectionPoint object publication can be disabled for this instance by setting msDS-DisableForInstances attribute on the SCP publication configuration object.

Resolution

The NetIQ Administration service cannot connect to the ADAM partition. To avoid this issue, promote the domain functional level to Microsoft Windows 2000 Native Mode or higher. Microsoft Windows 2000 Native Mode is a requirement only if you have pre-Windows 2000 domain controllers and DRA does not support pre-Windows 2000 domain controllers.  To resolve this issue follow the following steps:

  1. Promote the domain functional level to Microsoft Windows 2000 Native Mode or higher.
  2. Recycle ADAM Service and NetIQ Administration Service
  3. Open DRA and verify ADAM Configuration

Cause

Directory & Resource Administrator Server is Depolyed on a Domain Controller or member Server and SCP events are generated in the ADAM Event log each time the ADAM Service is cycled, or DRA is launched.

Domain Functional Level is not Microsoft Windows 2000 Native Mode or higher.

DRA is running in a Microsoft Windows 2000 Mixed Mode domain.
