DSA fails to sync passwords and reports:
12/15/11 17:05:49 (GMT-03:00) Common AcAdSwitches Error 0xe1000051. Cannot compare password hashes, source user: "a", target user: "a"
Error 0x8007041d. Cannot install AePAgent. Cannot start service. The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. (source=AePwd.PwdInstEx.1).
When examining the failing server we can see that the OS is Windows 2000 Server and the Event Viewer reports:
Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the AePAgent service to connect
Application popup: AePAgent.exe - Entry Point Not Found : The procedure entry point HeapSetInformation could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.
The server doesn't meet the minimum software requirements, outlined in the Release Notes.
