You are unable to add a host to an Active Directory domain or you are unable to list domain users when you add user permissions if the peak memory reservation for Likewise daemons is exceeded.

Problem

When you try to add a host to an Active Directory domain, the operation fails. Alternatively, the operation succeeds, but you cannot list domain users when you are adding user permissions.

When there are more than three trusted Active Directory domains, the peak memory reservation for the Likewise plug-in exceeds the default limit specified in the vSphere Web Client. You might be unable to add a host to an Active Directory domain or list domain users when you are adding user permissions until you increase the memory limit for the Likewise plug-in in the system resource pool.

Procedure

  1. Browse to the host in the vSphere Web Client object navigator.
  2. Select Manage > Settings > System Resource Allocation.
  3. Click Advanced to open the list of system resource pools.
  4. Select host > vim > vmvisor > plugins > likewise.
  5. Click likewise and click Edit.
  6. Select Memory Resources > Limit, and increase the limit.
  7. Click OK.
