Someone in our organisation has created a user through AD rather than the SBS console. We are trying to import all of the users in to the console but when we try to "add a new user account" or more importantly "change user role for user accounts" an error pops up stating the feature is not setup correctly.

So far ive repaired the console, restored the config file but i stall cant get this to work.

Any tech wizards have any further ideas?

Cheers

Login to the server with another account with Administrative privileges. Say Administrator2?
Does this account get the console correct or with the same error?

Have you made any changes to the "template" user accounts (Standard User, Network Administrator, Standard User with Administration Links, etc.)? Those accounts should all be present but disabled. Modifying those accounts in certain ways can apparently cause the error you're seeing. More information is given in this thread.

Disabled the accounts through the console and was then able to amend the user details.
