openfire 3.8.2 and Windows 2008 Activedirectory

In CategoryWindows Server Technology



If you have problem with openfire 3.8.2 and activedirectory integration  and clicking on  “TestSettings” displays nothing  then dont think that there is AD connection problem . If  your AD domain is  then try to set   just  dc=yourdomain,dc=com  in BaseDN  and  in Administartor DN  put  .

Still i dont have any clue why openfire 3.8.2 is not displaying any message when i click on TestSettings in Profilesettings page . But it is successfully connecting and fetching user details when i tried to add an admin account from AD in the end of LDAP setup .

MMC could not create the snap-in

In CategoryWindows Server Technology

I am using 32bit windows 2008  server as  AD domain controller   . After upgrading dot net framework ,all mmc snap-ins were failing to open .

All tools like Server Manager , Event Viewer were showing an error message  like..

MMC could not create the snap-in

MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.

Name: Server Manager

CLSID: FX:{18ea3f92-d6aa-41d9-a205-2023400c8fbb}




Finally I  came to know that it is due to .netframework and it can be fixed by removing .net 3.5  or renaming machine.config  file in  .netframework 2.x  CONFIG directory .

First I ran  sfc /scannow  then renamed C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config to machine.config.old


After rebooting the server everything worked fine.


You may try to remove .net 3.5 SP1  if you dont want to rename machine.config  in .netframe work 2.x directory .
