IACR and FACR on Managed Domains Generates No Such Object on Server Error

Incremental Accounts Cache Refresh Incorrectly Reported as Failed
Service Account Is Not a Member of a Windows Admin Group of One or More Domains
Incremental Accounts Cache Refresh Incorrectly Reported as Failed
DRA no longer incorrectly reports successful incremental or full account cache refreshes as failed. (ENG331312)

Service Account Is Not a Member of a Windows Admin Group of One or More Domains
Issue:
 After adding a managed domain, DRA displays an error that the DRA Service Account is not a member of a Windows administration group for one or more domains. (ENG331179)
 
Fix:
 This error displays as a result of a cache loader driver running on a FIPS compliant server. After you install this hotfix, the cache loader ignores FIPS and DRA correctly recognizes the Service Account's membership.

Cause

This hotfix addresses issues found in DRA 8.7.
