Hi, Please help to give detail information: 1. What’s you SCCM system version, you can get the version number in SCCM console -> site database -> site management , the column version in the right pane. 2. What’s you SCCM system hierarchy? 3. What account is used to run the AD system discovery?

How i can get this account? It's the server account. The only thing I can thing of is multiple forests or firewalls that would cause this unless someone messed with the permissions.John Marcum | http://www.TrueSec.com/en/Training.htm | http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/jmarcum

I am having the exact same problem with the exact same version and I am running a single domain with single forest.

Single domain issues like this are probably a permissions problem. Be sure the machine account of the server has read access to the appropriate OU in AD.Scott Gill SCCM Consultant

How would I set that up?

I don't think that it's permissions related, because you would most likely see an "access denied" error, not the one you mentioned above.

Nope did not work I just added sccm server back to administrators group and I am trying to run discovery again.

Still getting the error message the server is part of the administrators group and the server is part of the administrators group. Recreated the LDAP query and message persists. Any ideas?

I guess in both way it should provide LDAP or GC query is correct.Please check LDAP path is correct ?? or not.Also it cant be permission issue ,no access denied error stated.

Finally figured out what the problem is not sure how to fix. The discovery is looking for a database field in AD that does not exist. Forms on the internet say this is a common problem but I still cannot find a fix for it. Anyone have any ideas?

A snippet of a logfile or detailed error description would be more than helpful.Torsten Meringer | http://www.mssccmfaq.de
