Active Directory, A global catalog cannot be located to retrieve the icons fro the member list...
Posted on 2006-05-12
Windows 2003, single domain, active directory, domain controller also checkmarked as global catalog.
1) Open AD Users & Computers
2) Open group object
3) click tab [members]
4) A warning message is displayed, "A global catalog cannot be located to retrieve the icons fro the member list. Some icons may not be shown".
5) click [ok], and the members are in fact displayed.
What is the problem? I have never received this error before. And I am beginning to notice some other trouble with by Exchange Server's connectiblity with AD.
