When creating a hosting space and creating a website. A user web_xxxx is created automatically. This user is created as a Local User.
Since our webserver is in an AD, I want this user to be created in the AD, not just in the Users container but a special container named: “Hosting”.
This is what I did:
Servers -> Clicked on my Webserver -> Unfold ‘Active Directory Settings’ -> Checked ‘Create Active Directory Accounts’.
Below I selected Authentication Type ‘None’ and entered the Full Domain Name: Mycompany.local
Username: Administrator, Password: xxxxx
Servers -> Clicked on ‘Web’ under my Webserver. Under ‘Other Settings’, set the ‘Users OU (Optional):’ to ‘Hosting’.
When I click Update, I’ll get the error:
Service installation results:
Could not check/create Organizational Units: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
I also tried: Mycompany.local\Hosting (in the Users OU field).
The OU ‘Hosting’ is an OU directly in/under my domain.
For step 1:
If you enable auth none –> make sure the username and password field is left empty.
Make sure your SolidCP Server application pool user is in Active Directory and has domain admin as member group.
if any changes been made please do an iisreset.
Make sure you fill out both the Users OU and Groups OU.
It is capital sensitive, so make sure it’s 100% identical in Active Directory.
If it’s a sub OU make sure you make it similar to Rootou\subou\subou2 (for example: Customers\Web1\Users
Ok, I’ll try as soon as I’m at home.
i understand the Users OU: new users will be created in this OU.
But what does the Groups OU mean?
