2740989 - AD logons fail for all users for all BI applications with FWM 00029 error


  • Error message: 'Account Information Not Recognized:Logon Failed.  Please make sure you are a member of a valid mapped group' (FWM 00029)
  • Important to note this in not the typical FWM 00006 error 
  • In the CMC the mapped group(s) were showing 0 AD users, the AD users however still existed in the users and groups list, this represented an issue where the users appeared to be out of synch
  • It was not necessary to remap the AD group, this is very important when not remapping it was not necessary to restory from backup, or re-create user docs and security. 
  • New users could not be added to AD (existing users were not removed either), even after adding the domain users group, so basically all user/group synchronization was broken by this issue
