Can't join OS X (10.6.6) to AD domain...
Posted on 2011-02-25
I'm trying to join a OS X server to my 2008 AD domain but I'm having some issues...
I have enabled the Active Directory utility on the mac and then I've double-clicked it and filled in the domain and even given it a 'preferred' DC to contact. Then I've given it the enterprise admin account and click bind, but when I do that I get:
"unable to access domain controller. This computer is unable to access the domain controller for an unknown reason"
DNS is working well on the Mac and I can ping the domain controller by IP and FQDN, and vice versa.
I don't see anything in the log about this either.
Can anyone tell me how to get past this so that I can take advantage of AD groups and users on the Mac server?
