  • Windows Services for Unix installation issue

    Hello,
    I try to install Windows Services for Unix ver. 3.5 on a Windows 2000 sp.4 Domain Controller. During the installation I got an error message related to nisprop.dll registration. I ignored this message and the installation finished.
    the only issue is that the Group UNIX attributes tab is not displayed in Active Directory Users and Computers.
    The user's UNIX attributes is OK.
    I tried to register this dll using regsvr32 %SFUDIR%\common\nisprop.dll command but no success.
    the error message is the same.
    I performed the installation on several other domain member servers or domain controllers. No success.
    It seems that there is an Active Directory issue.
    I found a discussion on a microsoft forum (http://www.microsoft.atat.at/communi...b127d094db&p=1) but it is not concret and relible.
    Any advise is welcomed.

    Helpfully it is done
    Based on the guidance provided by Andy on http://www.microsoft.atat.at/communi...b127d094db&p=1, a missed attribute caused the tab to not be displayed in AD users and computers.
    Actually, a low level permission issue blocked the nisprop.dll registration and we had to add the key manually.
    The exact value of the key is {9a899a50-f96b-11d2-ac78-0008c7726cf7}.
    See my captures for more details.
