I'm having an issue with CRM 3.0

Clients get this error message where it says "Server might be unavailable".

Server is running, services are running, everything looks fine, so i started the Environment Diagnostics Wizard and i get the following:

Some of the domain controllers do not appear to be running. The following list of servers should be checked.
PrivUserGroup {9cd76ed6-ec49-4e29-b65d-9758fd5b17fa}
ReportingGroup {9cd76ed6-ec49-4e29-b65d-9758fd5b17fa}
SQLAccessGroup {9cd76ed6-ec49-4e29-b65d-9758fd5b17fa}
UserGroup {9cd76ed6-ec49-4e29-b65d-9758fd5b17fa}

I've tried to repair the CRM installation but it fails with this error at the end:

Anyone ever encountered a similar problem

I have the same problem... Do you know how to solve it

Re: CRM 3.0 "Server might be unavailable".


The 2nd "domain controller" issue was because these groups had been moved in
AD from the Users node to the Domain Controllers node. Dragging them back
fixed that diagnostic error.

Re: CRM 3.0 "Server might be unavailable".


I too am having the same error, except I'm only experiencing your first Error.

The repair tool didn't seem to do anything other than tell me that CRM server is working properly (Which it obviously isn't)

Anyone have any advice for this problem


Re: CRM 3.0 "Server might be unavailable".


A CRM repair installation is designed to repair missing/corrupt files and registry keys, but does not resolve Active Directory problems (which it looks like this is).

I'd check that all your domain controllers are working properly, that replication is working properly, and the 4 CRM groups (PrivUser, SQLAccess, User and Reporting) all exist.

If that all looks OK you try running the CRM Redeployment tool, as this does resolve some AD issues
