You cannot use the user principal name (UPN) to connect the Windows-based Live Meeting 2007 client to a meeting that is hosted by Communications Server 2007

Symptoms
You use the user principal name (UPN) to log on to the Windows-based Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 client. When you try to use the Windows-based Live Meeting 2007 client to connect to a meeting that is hosted by Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, you are repeatedly prompted for the user name and for the password. In this situation, if you enter the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) account name, you are connected to the meeting.

For example, this problem occurs if the Windows-based Live Meeting 2007 client is configured as follows:
  • UPN: your_user_name@alpineskihouse.com
  • SAM Account Name: fabrikam\your_user_name_alpineskihouse
  • Default Active Directory domain: Fabrikam.com
Cause
This problem occurs because the UPN does not match the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the default Active Directory domain.
