I've seen the classic UMRA Error "The server is unwilling to process the request" error come up a few times here in the last few months, and thought it might be a good idea to explain / how to fix this error if you are seeing it in your scripts. Now keep in mind, there are a few times you might see this error in your UMRA Automation, Forms, or MASS Scripts. However, the main time you will see this is if you are trying to update a users password, and the password doesent meet complexity requirements, or you are trying to set an Active Directory Attribute that you can not set. In other words the Active Directory attribute is generated by an action or process within Active Directory.
Here is an example of a way to get the UMRA Error to show. My client created his own script, and was trying to set the Last Logon Time in Active Directory, from a list a list of usersname is a .csv file. The key thing he didnt know was, the active directory attribute value is generated and populated when someone Logs onto the Active Directory Domain. From what I remember he was trying to fill in this the attribute lastlogon field with todays date, however again its a read only attribute, and thus getting the "The server is unwilling to process the request". So just if you are getting this message, take a look online and look if the attribute your setting is a read only attribute, if it is most of the time there are other Active Directory Attributes you can set, to get your desired attribute filled in.
I hope this helps any of you out there, who are seeing this same UMRA Error come up.
