Active Directory connection problem



Is there are any log file for connecting with AD?

At the moment i can't figure out what is the problem. Just plain error: "Could not connect to the domain server. Check that you entered all necessary information correctly."


I know my credentials work. And if i try to put wrong password i get: "Could not complete authentication. Check taht user name and password are correct."


Domain server is: servername.domain.local

Username: domain\username


FSPM server and console version: 12.10.74204
PS! Tried previous version (12.00) also, but no luck.


Any help?

    Does it work with the IP address for one of the AD servers?

    Could you please ensure you have sufficient rights to query Active Directory from the root level.

    As you can see, all the info is correct:




    IP of DC:



    User has domain admin rights:



    And if i test with wrong password, i get different error. Therefore communication to AD is working:



    So where do i look for error logs?


    Best regards
