This is most commonly caused by one of two issues:

  1. The Active Directory user object does not have the email field on the general tab filled out.

  2. Auth Connector is either not installed or cannot communicate with the Active Directory domain.


Depending on which issue is the cause in your environment, you would need to take one of the following actions:

  1. Ensure that the email address that the user is registering with is entered in the email field on the general tab of the Active Directory user object.
  2. Make sure that the user is added in the SEP Mobile console, unless you're using MDM enrollment or have a self-enroll domain registered.
  3. Reinstall Auth Connector. Ensure that during the installation process, a domain account with a minimum of domain-read permissions is used to run the Auth Connector service.
