3105925 - DM - Invalid username or password when running content refresh on server with AD account


When running a (server side) content refresh, there is an error "Connection to data source <source> failed. Invalid username or password"

This does not make sense as the data-source is the Disclosure Management server itself, and as we use AD authentication, clearly the user/password are correct as I am logged in

Furthermore, the log shows this error

Message: Unknown error (0x80005000)
Source: System.DirectoryServices
Stack Trace:  at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind(Boolean throwIfFail)
  at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind()
  at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.get_AdsObject()
  at System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.FindAll(Boolean findMoreThanOne)
  at System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.FindOne()

Note: the refresh via the DM client (in Excel and/or Word) works fine
