Help needed with error of ldap bind function call failed!

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have pulled a Windows 2008 server into Windows 2003 server domain. When I attempted to promote the server to a Domain Controller, I got this error message. Error: The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not authenticate to the Active Directory service on a domain controller. (ldap bind function call failed). Look in the details tab for error code and description. The Error Code I got was 82 / Local Error. The Event ID is 1006. Please help with this problem.

This problem is because the Ms DS-Key Version Number property from the user object KRBTGT increased with restoration. To solve the problem, you will need to download a hotfix and apply it to the Windows 2003-based domain controllers. The hotfix will

• Stop the problem from occurring before you have performed an authoritative restoration.

• Fix the problem after the restoration has been effected.

The hotfix is made available by Microsoft. You can visit or contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to get the hotfix. You must have Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 for the hotfix to work.
