I'm trying to create a site collection via stsadm. I do:
STSADM -o createsite ` -url "<url>" ` -title "<title>" ` -description "<desc>" ` -lcid 1033 ` -owneremail "<user email>" ` -sitetemplate "STS#1" ` -ownerlogin "<domain\user.name>"
(Sidenote: I'm in Powershell with an alias set up for stsadm.)
When I run the command, at the Powershell prompt I get only the following output:
User cannot be found.
If I look into the ULS logs, I see the following related logs (truncated a bit for clarity):
- Creating site http://somehost/sites/test in content database WSS_Content_768e4db1bf23493085857cd381b2f72e
- Error when trying to get trusted forests and domains. Exception message: Current security context is not associated with an Active Directory domain or forest.
- Found 0 trusted forests .
- Found 0 trusted domains
- Error in resolving user '<domain\user.name>' : System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Unable to contact the global catalog server
If I create a site collection through Central Administration, using the same <domain\user.name> credentials, the site collection is created fine.
Any ideas as to how to fix this problem? (Just to note, I created a web application via stsadm with the same user credentials and that worked fine.)
