Unregistering display specifiers

Note: You must have Enterprise Administrator rights to unregister display specifiers.

To unregister display specifiers in Active Directory

  1. Log in as a user with Enterprise Administrator rights.
  2. Open a command prompt and navigate to the Authentication Services installation directory.
  3. Run the DsReg.vbs script with the /remove option:
     DsReg.vbs /remove

    Note: To unregister display specifiers with One Identity Active Role, run the following command:

    DsReg.vbs /remove /provider:EDMS 

    To see all the DsReg.vbs options, run the following command:

    DsReg.vbs /help

    A SUCCESS message appears indicating that the display specifiers were removed successfully.

Display specifier registration tables

Display specifiers are stored in the Active Directory configuration partition under the DisplaySpecifiers container. The DisplaySpecifiers container has child containers named for a corresponding locale ID. US English display specifiers are in cn=409,cn=DisplaySpecifers,cn=Configuration,dc=domain. The following modifications are made for each locale by the display specifier registration script, DsReg.vbs.

Troubleshooting

To help you troubleshoot, One Identity recommends the following resolutions to some of the common problems you might encounter as you deploy and use Authentication Services.

Getting help from technical support

If you are unable to determine the solution to a problem, contact Technical Support for help.

Before you contact Support, please collect the following information:

  1. Take a system information snapshot. To do this, run the following command as root:
    /opt/quest/libexec/vas/scripts/vas_snapshot.sh

    This produces an output file in /tmp.

  2. Make note of the Unix attributes for the user that cannot log in (if applicable). To do this, capture the output from the following commands:
    vastool -u host/ attrs <username>
    id <username>

    Note: Depending on your platform, you may need to run id -a instead of id.

  3. Copy the text from any error messages that you see.
  4. Save the results of running a "double su." To do this, log in as root and run su <username> note any error messages. Then run su <username> again and note any error messages.

Once you have collected the information listed above, contact Support at https://support.oneidentity.com/authentication-services/.
