Error 50 When Trying to Manage A Domain Account


Version: 1.1
Date: May 20, 2016


When using ERPM to refresh a domain controller/domain, ERPM is successful. However, when you attempt to change a password against the system, you receive the following message: Error 50 - The request is not supported.


The target domain/domain controller is a read only domain controller. Read only domain controllers existed in Windows NT 4 Server and were reintroduced in Windows Server 2008. You cannot change a password on a read only domain controller. For more information, please see the following article:


Target a different domain controller that is not a read only domain controller. The alternative is to demote the RODC and re-promote it as a writeable DC.
