I've been evaluating Kerio in a testing environment and all is going great. I now want to move it to our live domain, but when I try to install the Active Directory Extension on our domain controller, I get the error:
"Following error occurs in process of altering Active Directory schema: 0x8000500d - (null)"
This accures while it is Checking domain configuration and rights. When I view the log I get:
"Active Directory altering process started.
Started at Tuesday, January 17, 2006 16:31:15
Getting schema master: eagle.ohrskow.com
Getting local computer name: eagle.ohrskow.com
Checking rights: Error: 0x8000500d - (null)
Finished at Tuesday, January 17, 2006 16:31:25
Active Directory altering process failed. Error: 0x80004005 - Unspecified error"

I've gotten the same error with version 6.1.1-113 and 6.1.2-569. Can anyone shed some light on what the problem might be. I haven't had much luck researching on Microsofts end.
I'm running Windows Server 2003 on the Domain Controller.
Thanks
Felicia

You need to install the Kerio Active Directory Extensions on the schema master, which may or may not be your parent domain controller.

I believe this is the Schema Master. We have 2 domain controllers. When I tried to install it on the first one it told me it wasn't the schema master. So now I'm trying it on the second one, which happens to be the parent, but I'm getting the error I listed above. Any other ideas?
Thanks

Are you a member of the Schema Admins group? The first error listed in the log is during the Checking rights step. I wonder if that means you don't have the required permissions.

Thank you very much I was able to get it to work. Our Domain Administrator account isn't the actual built in "Administrator" even after putting my account into the Schema Admins it did not work. I had to log in as administrator and it installed correctly.
Thanks

I think I had this same problem. Even though our working administrator account is a copy of the built-in Administrator account, and it had full Schema Admin permissions set, I still could not install the AD Extensions. I don't expect this was the intended behavior. Every admin who follows Microsoft's Best Practices knows you never use the built in admin if you can help it. But there is software which installs using the main Admin account to authorize their services instead of the System account, so what the hey?
