    When I use dsmgmt in ADAM, and server connections to connect to an ADAM
    such as

    connect to server localhost:389

    Why I get such error as DsBindWithSpnExW error <The PRC server is

    Actually the service does exist, and I can use ADSI edit to connect to it.
    So,what's the problem?

    that error usually implies that either the host is not available or
    that the hostname cannot be resolved.

    I guess you need to check that the name localhost is resolving
    as you would expect, that you do not have any RPC problems
    logging in the event log on the system etc.

    Hi, Lee,

    When I changed to ip address form, like

    connect to server

    it says the parameter is incorrect. I just follow the steps in
    start_here.htm to allow non-ssl password update. What is the correct form of
    this command? I am so confused.

    You cannot use an IP address, you need to use a hostname so in the
    connections sub-menu of dsmgmt you need

    connect to server localhost:389

    if running on the ADAM server which does not appear to be working for
    you or

    connect to server <computer name>:389

    What happens if you use the Computer Name rather than localhost?

    When I typein my computer name, it has the same error saying "The RPC server
    is not available".

    I'm afraid I'm out of ideas on this, it looks like something has gone
    badly wrong with name resolution or RPC registration.
    All I can suggest is that you try reinstalling ADAM on the machine
    or another machine.

    4. Type connections and press ENTER. This menu is used to connect to the specific server where the changes occur. If the currently logged on user does not have administrative permissions, different credentials can be supplied by specifying the credentials to use before making the connection. To do this, type set creds DomainNameUserNamePassword, and then press ENTER. For a null password, type null for the password parameter.
    5. Type connect to server servername, and then press ENTER. You should receive confirmation that the connection is successfully established. If an error occurs, verify that the domain controller being used in the connection is available and the credentials you supplied have administrative permissions on the server.
    Example: set creds domain useradminthedomain password (use space, not "/" or "-" )
