Re: "Directory Service is Busy"
- On further investigation, a domain controller that is not patched to SP1 or
SP2, thereby remaining at RTM patch level, would accept a � � space value
for a user�s Manager property when assigned programmatically. When the
domain controller is at least applied with SP1, a half-minute delay would
happen before return the �Directory service is busy� error.
On 1st april approval was granted to deploy the code fix to the production
environment, and the user account provisioning job succeeded without error.
