    Snow Leopard AD-OD issues

    We've got a nice new Xserve running 10.6 and are trying to get it setup in a AD-OD environment.
    After the initial install its already enabled DNS and OD, i've stopped and removed DNS as this is running on the windows DC's.
    Its successfully binded to the AD but when i load up Workgroup Manager and select LDAP it asks for authentication details and wont let me log in
    If i select the AD in Workgroup manager it pulls all the users and computers in but doesnt let me add any groups, i get a Error of type eDSNoStdMappingAvailable message, is that normal?

    Many thanks

    Hmmm, now i've had a coffee and woken up abit i realised i needed to log into LDAP as diradmin rather than the normal administrator user

    I've successfully created user and computer groups and added users from the AD into the managed user groups.

    Now time to set some policies and try adding a client machine

    I've successfully added a client (10.5) to the OD but it won't let me join the AD.
    Keeps coming up with Active Directory Time Error, i've tried everything recommended to fix it but it still wont play ball.
    Joining the AD on the Xserve (10.6) was faultless, i might wait until our snow leopard upgrades or new machines turn up to see if it works

    Just a heads up, but if the server set DNS up for you it would indicate that the DNS running on your Windows DC's is not providing a forward and reverse lookup for the MacServer which should be corrected as its likley to cause future problems. OS X is very sensitive when it comes to DNS.

    Have you sync'd the time to one of your windows DC's ?
