OCS 2007 R2 auto sign in works, manual doesn't
Posted on 2010-01-06
So our OCS has been working pretty much properly since it was set up. There's only one thing that's been bugging me--when we first set up the server, either automatic or manual sign in worked.
Now, only automatic sign in works. If you "log out" of communicator while it's running & try to log back in, you're prompted for your sign-in address, username, and password.
When using the appropriate sign-in address (know it's the right one due to the OCS management console), username (taken from the user's ADSIEdit principle name, & tried in the format DOMAIN\username, DOMAIN.COM\user, as well as email@example.com) & password, we are still given an error that the password is incorrect.
Now, the only way short of logging out of windows & logging back in is to delete the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Shared\UcClient keys for sign-in address & username.
