A common problem is with user rights on the target server. Windows 2008 in particular causes issues with User Access Control; when connecting remotely, even an administrative account can be granted a 'normal' user security token, which means you may not have the rights to get the executable copied across and the service started.
From the command-line on your AO box, try connecting to admin$ on the target server with the same credentials you're specifying for the AD adapter, e.g.:
net use t: \\targetserver\admin$ /user:domain\adminuser *
If it allows you to connect, can you copy a file across? If not, disable UAC on the target and try again.
UAC is completely turned off on the Peers and CDP.
Did you try to connect manually from the command line as suggested? What was the result?
The command worked and i was able to copy a file onto the admin share on the target system.
Thanks for posting that link to xCmd Utility. that was helpful.
Summary of my Problem,
I am running a AD adapter which is 20.11.03 version and still depends on the RCTRLX to do the remote executions.
I wanted to Update it to t20.12.03 where in which the RCTRLX was replaced by xCmd Utility. I can see the xCMD(followed by an ID).exe being copied onto the ADMIN share of the Target box and executing it.
But when it tries to perform an AD action ( ex : adding/deleting members from a group) , i see an error saying "In-sufficient rights to perform the mention operation "
when i run the same process using the previos version of the adapter (20.11.03) my operation succeeded.
On my peers i am running my BMC AO CDP service under a service account. That service account has Administrator rights and is a member of administrators group and has permissions set to logon as a service.
UAC is completely disabled.
Long story short, using my old version of adapter i am able to add/delete members to a ad group, and using the latest one i am un able to do that. I verified all the post - installation steps BMC provided in 20.12.03 AD adapter setup guide.
any suggestions ??
Check the user under which the xcmd service is running on the target machine (might require a keen eye on this machine's task manager).
Have you specified the "logon-with-user-credentials" parameter in the adapter configuration?
The Xcmd service is running under SYSTEM user.
Yes i specified the "logon-with-user-credentials" parameter in the adapter by checking that option.
