Active Directory Synchronisation Partial Failure


C

Chris Slowinski

Hello,

We're seeing an odd situation in which AD sync partially fails with one
particular AD group; however, it succeeds with other groups. This is causing
a lot of head scratching and I was wondering if anyone can offer any
suggestions. The error from the event log is (company-specific details have
been edited):

For what it's worth, we discovered this problem was caused by trying to
synchronise with an AD group that contained special accounts with well-known
SIDs. The AD guy explained that it was because these weren't "real" user
accounts and so nothing could be created in Project Server.

is there a resolution to fixing this? the logs don't really tell you
what users are in the 'special accts'.

thanks for your input.
