Information in this document applies to any platform.
SymptomsWhen trying to figure the Web-Config Manager it errors out with:
"Unable to get the user named (<UserName>) on computer or domain named (<DomainName>)!
Cannot create ActiveX component."
CauseThe FDM WebConfig manager requires active access to the Domain to set the properties. When logging into the server as a local account, it is unable to browse the directory. Local accounts by default can not scan/access the domain. Since the WebConfig requires domain access to place the user in a specific user group, it requires domain access.
Solution1. Log into FDM Webserver as a "Domain" Account
2. Run the FDM WebConfig Manager
3. Click "OK" to save/apply changes.
