When accessing Symantec Unified Authentication MMC snap-in, you may receive the following error message:

Cannot detect a Lifecycle Management Service on the selected computer.


This error occurs when the IP address given for the primary DNS server is set to the Lifecycle Management Service (LMS) server, which is not configured to act as a DNS server.


To resolve this issue, change the IP address for the primary DNS server to match that used by the Lifecycle Management Service (LMS) server and/or other computers in the domain.
