OS X 10.5.5 integration with Active Directory
Posted on 2008-10-27
I'm trying to get a couple macs on my Windows AD network and I'm having a few issues.
First of all, this is what I want to have happen: When you boot up a Mac I want to see the login/password screen and allow network AD users to log into the computer.
And this is what I've done so far:
1. Enabled the Active Directory server in the Directory Utility
2. Added my AD directory server (and it's reporting that it is responding normally)
3. Within the Active Directory advanced settings:
a. Checked "Create mobile account at login"
b. Unchecked "Require confirmation before creating a mobile account"
c. Unchecked "Use UNC path from AD to derive network home location"
4. Within the System Pref. Accounts:
a. Set Automatic login to disabled
b. Set display login window as name and password
I believe I also need to check the option that says "Allow network users to login to this computer" but it doesn't seem to be showing up. So the end result is, I can only login using my local credentials - no AD user.
WHat am I missing??? Thx!
