How to Bind the Lion Server to Active Directory - For Dummies
applies to workstation and server
I was trying last week to connect a staff members mac book air (how the school can afford these when suite pc are 7 years old and dying i dont know) and whatever i tried i could not get it to connect to smb shares on my 08r2 server. smb:\\server\share$ brought up the usernaem password box but shatever i tried in there it just would not connect tried domain\user email@example.com etc even tried domain admin account just kept wobbling the window and asking again for username / password. Any ideas servers just a std 08r2 box
na its just a single pc see no need to domain it
did you try just the username and password no domain\ etc? As ours if it asks it doesnt require the domain part and is quite happy with the username n password. This was done before we added them to the domain.
how odd..? do you have a linux or nas share you could try connecting to?
only thing that has just sprung to mind was i remember one of ours randomly asking for the local admin user n password before accepting the domain details. I think something it was trying to do with Keychains. So you could try that, if that doesn't work afraid im fresh out of ideas at the moment.
Have you tried browsing to the server from the network window and tried the "Connect as..." there?
nope and typically while im now at that school cant find hide nor hare of the teacher laptop grrrr
