I have installed single server ESM 3.5 on a w2k3 sp1 server with sql 2000
sp4 installed. The install reports that it was successful. I then install
the management console on the same machine this install also claims it
was successful. I then configure the Management console for
Authentication to an e-Dir tree the test of the connection is successful.
Now here is where the problems start. I try to save it and get an error
saying it can not be saved. The event viewer displays the following
message.
