Customer was getting the following error while running the provisioning process to create AD accounts: 


creation failed: Connector Server Add failed: No such object (ldaps://server:20403) 

CA IDM r12.6.8 Windows Server Active Directory endpoint

While checking the account template, we noticed that the OU referred at the matched account container rule was missing in AD itself - so Provisioning Server was trying to create an account on a nonexistent OU. 


There are two ways to fix this issue:


1. Re-create the missing OU in Active Directory;




2. Change the destination OU at the Account Container rule to match an existing OU.

Please help us improve!
