Known Issues

We recommend that you review the following notes before using bv-Admin Web Portal v7.20 SP1:

If NetBIOS is disabled, you may have problems navigating to the Database Server machines from trusted domains while running the Web Portal Configuration Wizard. To avoid this, type the Database Server machine name instead of using Browse (...).
The Property sheet of a document is not displayed correctly if the user submits documents for printing from a Windows 2003 machine with the Print Setup as Landscape.
You may be asked to restart the computer if the recent version of msxml3 is already installed, or it has been loaded during installation.
Portal is unable to validate SMTP service on a member server.
The Terminal Service Home Directory field in AD cannot be updated if it was set in Native tool on XP workstations.
Setup allows the user to install the Web Portal Server binaries in the installation folder of bv-Admin.
The Reset Password task is not displayed if the user does not have the right to change passwords, and if Access Check is selected.
User objects with a slash (/) in the name are not supported.
The 'Access Denied' error appears if a custom role with minimum rights required to create a mailbox is assigned to a trustee, and the trustee has rights on the Exchange container. To avoid this, use the Mailbox Administrator role.
Since bv-Admin Web Portal does not support Novell NDS®, co-management of objects from these namespaces is not supported.
When you view Windows NT user accounts in the results view, even disabled user accounts show the Enabled icon.
A trustee's work environment should be refreshed using Update Roles, if a Managed Collection over which a trustee has a role is renamed.
The Create Mailbox operation fails if the bv-Admin for Windows Server and bv-Admin Web Portal are installed on a Windows Server 2003, and Exchange 2000 is installed on a Windows 2000 Server in the trusted domain.
The containers where approval based operations are enabled are visible only if a bv-Admin Web Portal user has at least one role.
Global Settings may not be visible if the trustee is a member of local admin group via recursive and multi-level group membership.
If Microsoft Exchange 2000 System Management Tools is not installed on the bv-Admin Web Portal computer, then even if the trustee has the required permissions, the Create Mailbox operation will fail if the managed Active Directory tree (which has the Exchange server) is a trusted domain of the bv-Admin Web Portal domain.
Some tasks on Services will not be displayed if a trustee is assigned the Domain Manager role, but not the Service Manager role.
