LW_ERROR_INVALID_MESSAGE (The Inter Process message is invalid)
After a host level outage or host outage work, there's a rare case where older versions of AD Bridge cause the cache file /var/lib/pbis/db/lsass-adcache.filedb.* to become 0 bytes. The file also cannot be written to, so it causes an error when attempting to perform a domain join similar to the following:
root@host /opt/pbis/bin > pbis-status LSA Server Status: Compiled daemon version: 184.108.40.2063 Packaged product version: 8.5.289.0 Uptime: 0 days 0 hours 0 minutes 47 seconds [Authentication provider: lsa-activedirectory-provider] Status: Unknown Mode: Unknown root@pl000680 /opt/pbis/bin > domainjoin-cli join DOMAIN.LOCAL join-user Joining to AD Domain: domain.local With Computer DNS Name: computername join-user@DOMAIN.LOCAL's password: Error: LW_ERROR_INVALID_MESSAGE [code 0x00009c46] The Inter Process message is invalid
