HOWTO Deltek troubleshooting invalid SiteWideDirectory entry.

This is an error when you try to connect to the Deltek repository server.

Error & Warnings:
Error: x:\data\Deltek\GCSPremier\SiteData is an invalid SiteWideDirectory entry in DTLocal.ini

Error: x:\data\Deltek\GCSPremier\SiteData is an invalid SiteWideDirectory entry in DTLocal.ini

As you can see, the Error & Warnings and Description doesn't make any sense though pay attention of DTLocal.ini file.

The DTLocal.ini hold the connection string from your workstation and to the Deltek repository server.

To troubleshoot this problem, please follow these steps:

  • First, you have to determine the actual network path of your Deltek repository server. For example, x:\data\Deltek\GCSPremier\SiteData where x is the network drive and the Deltek folder.
  • Go to workstation Windows directory and search for DTLocal.ini file.
  • Open in Notepad, you will be able to see SiteWideDirectory folder path. For example, SiteWideDirectory=x:\data\Deltek\GCSPremier\SiteData. This path should point to the correct Deltek folder.
  • Next, update the network path in \Deltek\GCSPremier\SiteData\DTSITE.ini file. The DTSITE.ini file contains network path that should connect to the right folder of your Deltek repository server.
  • In \Deltek\GCSPremier\STARTUP folder update DTSHARED.ini using the correct network path to Deltek server.
  • In \Deltek\GCSPremier\Setup folder update _GCSPINS.ini using the correct network path to the Deltek server. In other installation, the Setup folder contained current version and service patch directory. You need to check these subfolders to update the _GCSPINS.ini file.
  • Lastly, go to the user workstation and check if you can connect to your Deltek Server and check the shared folder.

HOWTO Assign the correct access permission?

  • Create a Deltek Group in your Active Directory (AD). For example, let's call it as Group Deltek Users.
  • Assign users to the Group Deltek Users.
  • Assign Group Deltek Users to the Deltek server path with read and write access. For example, the company network path is \kingnet002\finance\software\deltek directory, where kingnet002 is the server, finance is the main folder, software is subfolder and deltek a subfolder. You will only assign the Group Deltek Users to the deltek directory. The users is denied access to \kingnet002\finance\ or \kingnet002\finance\software\ folders.
  • Test user access.

Thank you,

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
