I am having this issue where any network users cannot login to any mac on the network. Anyone who tries to login to a windows pc to the same active directory server are able to login.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? error message

Look through the error in Event Viewer on your DC's and see if you can pin point the problem. I would also recommend making sure you have everything setup correctly. You might want to use this pdf to review how you have AD authentication working on Mac's in your environment.

perfect ended up being permissions on my network drive.

Thanks for the help
