Cognos Business Intelligence (BI) 10.2.2 Fix pack 6
Microsoft Windows 2012 R2 server
When adding a new domain to the list of namespaces in Cognos BI, during test or startup it give a error message.
New domain have in our example the name ExtAD
[ ERROR ] CAM-AAA-0146 The namespace ‘ExtAD’ is not available.
[ ERROR ] CAM-AAA-0064 The function ‘Configure’ failed.
[ ERROR ] CAM-AAA-0089 The provider is not initialized.
[ ERROR ] CAM-AAA-0036 Unable to authenticate because the credentials are invalid.
[ ERROR ] ADSI Error:
8009030C: LdapErr: DSID-0C09053E, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e, v1db1
The user name or password is incorrect.
The user logged into the Windows server where you have Cognos Configuration, does not have a account (or trust) in the new domain, so the test fail and the new Active Directory namespace is not shown.
Start Cognos Configuration and update the new namespace values
Enter a windows service account in the Bindings Credentials row in Cognos Configuration for the new namespace.
Enter in the format: domain.com\username
and the password (because it is a service account the password will never change).
Save the changes and restart the Cognos BI service where the content manager are.
Test to surf to the gateway again.
If Cognos 8 is running on the machine in the same forest as the configured domain/forest, you do not need to specifically set the bind credentials. However, if you run cross forest, then, you must provide the bind credentials
You would also need the binding credentials if AD is not configured to allow anonymous bind
If the password is correct:
-2146893044 => 8009030C: LdapErr: DSID-0C0903A9, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 775, v1db1 (account locked out)
If the pwd is incorrect returns:
-2146893044 => 8009030C: LdapErr: DSID-0C0903A9, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e, v1db1 (unknown username or bad password)
