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.
