    Question Error in starting WDS Server - "Logon failure: unknown username or bad password."

    Hi All,

    I'm having problem with adding the WDS node, inside the MMC of the WDS server i have selected "Local" but then it failed to add itself with "Logon failure: unknown username or bad password." error message.

    I've solved the problem in starting the WDS service by following the steps below:

    Code:
    In Active Directory:
    
    1) Log into a Domain Controller and launch Active Directory Users and Computers
    2) Enable "Advanced Features" from the View menu
    3) Find the server object for the WDS server and in Properties select the Security tab
    4) Verify that the SELF group has the following permissions:
    
    a) Create All Child Objects
    b) Delete All Child Objects
    c) Validated write to DNS host name
    d) Validated write to service principal name
    e) Read Personal Information
    f) Write Personal Information
    
    or full control (to simplify the access).
    in my event viewer there is no error message at all. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
