How to connect a Mac to Domain on Server 2008
Posted on 2009-05-05
I recently replaced a 2003 DC Server with a 2008 Server and am having problems joining the domain from the Mac. I am using the same machine and domain name on the new 2008 Server. I connected the Mac to the 2003 domain without problem using the Mac Directory setup with binding and such. I have a green light on the Mac now saying that I am connected to the local domain and 'The server is responding normally', but I have no shares or services showing in the Mac Finder. Is it a problem that I'm using the same naming convention? Could it be the machine ids? When I try to connect to the domain from the Mac I get a not found error using both name and IP. I had to recreate my profile on Vista in order to join the new domain. I am brand new to Macs and would like to know how to proceed. I can remote desktop into the 2008 server from the Mac with no problem, so it is being found.
