Connectcomputer and Vista

When running connectcomputer to join a Vista machine.. don’t reuse an existing username and set up a new computer and expect it not to barf at the end.  I did my usual of setting up the computer and realized I was horking up the SBS install wizard in the process.



CAuthPage::GetUsersAndComputers() – ADsOpenObject( LDAP://SERVERNAME.DOMAIN.lan/DC=DOMAIN,DC=lan, Susanb, [PW] )
CAuthPage::GetUsersAndComputers() – ADsOpenObject( LDAP://SERVERNAME.DOMAIN.lan/DC=DOMAIN,DC=lan, Susanb, [PW] )
GetXMLNode() – DOMDocument::selectSingleNode( root/mapping[@user=’susanb’] ) failed [1]
LoadMappingInfo() – find [root/mapping[@user=’susanb’]] failed, user not mapped
CWizard::PrepAutoLogon()
CWizard::PrepAutoLogon() – runonce key set


This ends up screwing up adding remote desktop and all sorts of weirdness.


The moral of this story is that remember to look in the log file and figure out what tripped you up.
