To verify it in detail, check the following two locations: 
1) AD display specifier 

Using ADSI Edit, browse to domain/Configuration/DisplaySpecifiers/LanguageID/DS-UI-Default-Settings
The default naming context of ADSIEdit may not show the Configuration container. You can, however, specify it manually.
  1. Select Action -> Connect to... In the "Connection Point" frame,
  2. choose "Select a well known Naming Context".
  3. Choose "Configuration" from the drop-down box.
  4. Hit OK,
The Configuration container, and its sub-containers such as CN=Services and CN=Sites, will now be visible.
For example, if the Active Directory domain is and the language support is US-English (CN=409), the entry to this object would be found in:
object path: CN=DS-UI-Default-Settings,CN=<localeID>,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com
Check if the dSUIAdminNotification attribute of the above object contains the following values by right clicking on the object (DS-UI-Default-settings), and choosing properties: 
<any number>,{D0D2C2AE-C143-4C81-A61C-BE95C3C5EEDF} 
<any number>,{DD3941B8-CD2E-4759-AE77-02E9CCD84BD6}
