Unable to bind a Mac to my Windows domain.
Posted on 2013-06-14
My CEO just requested that I purchase him a Mac, and I'm not able to bind it to my domain. When I try, it goes through the steps, and when it gets to "Joining Active Directory Domain," it spins for a while, then I get the message "Plugin encountered an error processing request."
I have one other user on a Mac, and she tells me that she had the same problem when she tried to update from Snow Leopard to the next OS update. So she went back to Snow Leopard and she's able to connect.
Tried disabling the "Use Windows UNC path for home" and "Authentication from any domain" options, per a post I found by Google search, but that didn't help.
AD server is also the Domain Controller. Running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.
Mac is OS X 10.8.2.
Mac that is able to connect properly is still on Snow Leopard.
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
