Common Errors and Resolutions
Error Code 1355: This error indicates the domain controller could not be contacted. You want to ensure that your domain controller is up and running and is accessible. If it is running and accessible, you want to ensure that your VNet in which the host is being added to is pointing to the Domain Controller's IP. If this is after an account has been added in Nerdio Manager, you can adjust this via the Nerdio Manager portal:
Error Code 2242: This refers to an expired password for the Domain Admin account being used. You want to update the password for your domain admin account and update this in Nerdio Manager under Settings>Integrations and selecting the directory.
Error Code 1332: This error is typically associated with an incorrect username/domain for the Domain Admin account under Settings>Integrations for the directory in Nerdio Manager.
Error Code 1326: The password is incorrect for the Domain Admin account designated in Settings>Integrations for the directory in Nerdio Manager.
Error Code 1909: The Domain Admin account designated under Settings>Integrations is locked. You need to unlock this account.
