We are a windows environment and trying to integrate macs into our network environment. I have followed some instructions from this site, but nothing I do seems to work. We keep getting Network accounts unavailable and are not able to log in with network credentials if there is no local account on the mac book. I have tried to unbind and bind again, checked all the advanced network settings as recommended in some of the posts. We do have a mac server and we have that listed in the Directory Utility as well as the windows network. I have added a preferred dns server and allow administration by domain admins, etc. under Directory Utility.
We do have a mac server - do I need to add something to this server in order to get this to work? I have not set up a mac server at all and know nothing about it so any help would be greatly appreciated.
