Directory Utility/Users can't log into their computers??!?!
Posted on 2010-04-01
Xserver version 10.5.8 is giving me a headache. Users reported that they could not log into their systems(iMacs). I double clicked on the login screen to find that all said and "Some Network Accounts Available" and other saying "No accounts available". So I logged into the server then to entered Server Admin. Open Directory was shown as running, which is what we want right. Next I entered the Utilities > Directory Utility. From there the "Local Server" was shown as running but the "Active Directory Server(Windows 2003 Server R2)" was not and had a red button label next to it. I checked the setup and everything was labeled as what it should be. I then rebooted the server. The Directory Utility now shows both the Local and Active Directory Server as running, green lights. I reboot a few iMacs and find that they all now still say "Some Network Accounts available". What could be the issue, i'm sure I hit all of the hot spots and they are active and even show in the "Workgroup Manager" utility with their account info. What should I do next to fix this issue.
