DNSDHCP-Console not working both under XP and 7

Since few days we can´t administer our dhcp and dns servers with the
console.
At the login we get the message: "login not available, check your
credentials" (translated from german). The button more... gives a
general help article but no hint to the exact error.

Our idea was the last java update, but removing java 7 and using java 6
did not solve the problem.

Anyone run into same error?

    That's usually a certificate/SSL problem. Check if your server (LDAP)
    certs are still valid, if not renew them. Make sure you have the latest
    DNS/DHCP console, and try the clear cache button at the login screen.

  • Some additions:

    a) new install of java 7 didn´t solve the issue.

    b) Problem occurs at both version of dnsdhcp-console shipped with oes2
    and oes11.

    c) problem persist as well against oes2 and oes11 servers

    with regards
