FDM Can Not Successfully Change Authentication Provider in Load Balance Config, Receive "Active X Can't Create Object" Error

 Modified 25-MAY-2010     Type PROBLEM  

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management - Version: and later   [Release: 9.3 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When launching the FDM Load Balance Configuration receiving error message:

"Unable to create Load Balance Manager object!
Please verify that the user name, password, and domain are correct
Error=Cannot create ActiveX component."

The user is unable to update the MSAD provider. 


Invalid ID/PWD is stored in DCOM Object
This error message is caused by one of three items:

1) The Account entered in the Load Balance Config has been locked out
2) The Id/Pwd entered into the load balance configuration is invalid
3) There is an invalid id set in the Security Tab of the Load Balance Manager DCOM object. 

Any of these items would result in being unable to create the Active X component necessary.

The screen shot of the error message states the cause of the issue. The software is unable to create the FDM Load Balance Manager DCOM object and results in error. In order to set the permissions on the DCOM object, the id/pwd must be correct and the account must be available and not locked out.
