Directory Service Manager for NetWare (DSMN) is installed and successfully managing NetWare servers. However, an error message continually shows up in Event Viewer:

Event ID 8026: The sync agent service failed to remove account from group CONSOLE OPERATORS on the NetWare server <servername> due to error 10253.

This event will occur for each NetWare server that is being managed by DSMN.


Arcada Backup (now Seagate) installs a Console Operators group on the Windows NT server computer. There are no members in this group and according to Seagate is not necessary for Arcada Backup to function properly.

The "Console Operators" group will not be copied to NetWare 3.x servers during the synchronization process because the group name contains a space, and does not conform to NetWare's group naming convention (In NetWare, spaces in group names are changed to underscores). NetWare 4.x servers are not affected by this limitation.


Remove the Console Operators group from the Windows NT server computer and synchronize the domain.

NOTE: If a group is required "console_operators" group name is acceptable.
