Hi Travis, sorry for posting this question here, but since I can't find an answer for this anywhere, decided to try asking here.
I am getting an error during SCSM 2012 installation, giving this message:
An error occurred while executing a custom action:_GrantLocalPermissionsToWCSAccount.11EE91AB_EABF_48A6_9973_4DCD73190AC6
on the setup log I can also find this
The active directory object found on path xxxx is not a recipient.
Do you have any clue on what could this be?
Thanks in advance.
