unknown object in AD – “The Active Directory object could not be displayed.”

Posted by Premkumar Yogeswaran on April 30, 2012


Issue:

User object as been displayed as unknown object.

"The Active Directory object could not be displayed."

"Unable to view attribute or value. You may not have permissions to view this object."

Cause:

Open User account property -> Security permission, -> advanced

In the Access control list.

You can see deny permission for self and everyone.

This might be added automatically or someone. (No Idea)

Resolution:

Open User account property -> Security permission, -> advanced

In the Access control list.

You can see deny permission for self and everyone.

Remove the deny permission from the ACE (self and everyone)

Now the issue will be fixed.
