Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0115' Unexpected error
/CCMAdmin/userprefsbasiclist.asp. A trappable error (E06D7363)

The issue occurs when the DC Directory Administration password is not the same across all the Cisco CallManager servers in a cluster.

Solutions

This error message displays when the DC Directory administrative passwords are not the same across the CallManager servers. Complete the steps in the Restart Services section of this document in order to resolve this issue. If the issue persists, proceed to the Reset Passwords in the Registry section of this document.

Restart Services

Restart the DC Directory service and then the Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) service.

Choose Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Services.

Reset Passwords in the Registry

Complete these steps first on the Cisco CallManager publisher server and then on the Cisco CallManager subscriber servers.

  1. Identify the new DC Directory administrator password. Consider this as <password>.

  2. Open a command prompt and issue the PasswordUtils <password> command.

    This action generates an encrypted password. Make this password as <ENCpassword>.

  3. Choose Start > Run, type regedit in the text field, and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.

  4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Directory Configuration and set the DCDMGRPW and MGRPW values in the registry to <ENCpassword>.

  5. Open C:\dcdsrvr\directoryconfiguration.ini and set the passwd value to <ENCpassword>.

  6. Open another command prompt, and issue the UMEncryptText <password> command.

    This command generates out.txt in the same folder from which it ran.

  7. Open out.txt and copy the contents after Text=.

    This long hex value is the encrypted password. Make it <LongENCpassword>.

  8. Open C:\dcdsrvr\config\UMDirectoryConfiguration.ini with Notepad.

    Note: Do not use any other text editor.

  9. Set the CiscoLdapPwd and UserLdappwd values to <LongENCpassword>.

  10. Save the C:\dcdsrvr\config\UMDirectoryConfiguration.ini file and exit.

  11. Restart the IIS Admin Service, and try to access the Cisco CallManager Administration pages:

  12. Also, verify these password settings:

Error: Cannot continue with log-on because Profile 'Default Profile' has no Admin Node DN configured

The DC Directory Administrator cannot be accessed, and this error appears:

DCD09000000 Cannot continue with log-on because Profile "Default Profile" has no Admin Node DN configured.

Solution

In order to resolve this issue, complete these steps:

  1. Choose Start > Programs > DC Directory Administrator.

  2. The first screen shows Default Profile. Click the Change button, and choose Default Profile Properties.

  3. Fill out the information EXACTLY as shown here:

    Profile Name: Default Profile,Admin Node DN: /O=cisco.com,Current
    		  User DN: /O=cisco.com/CN=Directory Manager,Primary Login Server: <this is
    		  your Publisher server hostname>. 
  4. After you fill out these fields, click Apply, then Ok and Close.

  5. Now, you can log into DC Directory Administrator with the user name Directory Manager and your DCD Password.

Additional Issues

User Search on the Global Directory Fails

Problem

When you try to do a search on the global directory from with Cisco CallManager Administration page, the search freezes and this error appears:

Error in processing: DBLX.UserLocaleBrowserLangMapListX

Solution

In order to resolve this issue, restart the IIS Admin service on the Cisco CallManager publisher and subscriber servers.
