After installing all the required components for Host Security Integration (HSI) and configuring a new Host Security Domain for the first time, you may get the following pop up error when opening Host Account Manager.
The Windows NT Event Viewer Application log will record the following two warning messages:
During the installation of the Windows NT Password Synchronization Service (SNAPMP), you are prompted to type in a list of Domain(s) which contain the Host Account Cache (SNADATABASE). If something other than the Domain Name is inadvertently entered in this field (such as the Server Name), SNAPMP will be unable to register it's location with the Master DataBase where these accounts reside.
If you trace on the SNA WinNT Account Synchronization (hsiint1.atf), when trying to start the Host Account Manager, you will see where the RPC failure occurs.
RegisterServer: SendRegisterMessage to returned error: STI - RPC Client object connect was called without specifying network address and no registry default was found. , trying again RegisterServer: Ssecond SendRegisterMessage to returned error: STI - RPC Client object connect was called without specifying network address and no registry default was found. RpcServerInitialize: StiSrvrRegister error for server PMP, STI - Unable to register server with MDB.
In order to correct this problem, you must edit the registry and change the MdbDomains key to reflect the correct Domain(s). WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SnaPMP\Parameters MdbDomains: REG_MULTI_SZ: <Domain_Name(s)>
NOTE: Domain names must be entered on separate lines. An unlimited number of additional Windows NT domain names can be added using this registry setting.
