In server settings, do you have option 'Allow AD users to login if they have atleast one permission set' set to 'Yes'. By default this option will be set to 'No'.
yes, I changed the settings to yes already
Having the same issue here.
No problem with several EPO Admins Accounts, but can't login with one of them.
The account in failure is Domain Admin and EPO Admin.
Did you resolve this ?
Has any new information come out regarding this? I have installed 5.1.1 and created AD accounts to log in. In my orion log I see many entries for "Failed to login because auto-creation failed for user: " however my server seems fine and logging in is ok.
Just curious if anyone knew if this was a bug.
if you want to login with your AD account without any user in EPO you have to do the following steps.
1) Menu - Registered Servers -> Add your active directory connection
2) Menu - Server Settings - Active Directory User Login: Activate this settings
3) Menu - Permission Sets -> add an active directory group for active directory group mapping
Afterwards you can login to epo using your active directory user: yourdomain\username
The yourdomain\username was key for me. I was trying "firstname.lastname@example.org"
