APPLIES TO

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You have Distributed file system (DFS) installed on a Windows Server 2003 R2-based computer. On this computer, you try to add a member to a DFS Replication (DFSR) group. The member has a name that resembles the following:

S-String01


Note Here, String is a placeholder that represents a string. An example of an actual member name is "S-Name01."

In this scenario, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

The domain of the distinguished name cannot be determined. The name returned with an error.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of an error in the DsCrackNames function of the Ntdsapi.dll file. This error causes the DsCrackNames function to interpret the member name as a security identifier (SID). The DsCrackNames function should interpret the member name as a distinguished name.
