    imac unable to log on to MS Domain

    I have added an Imac to our MS AD domain but can't for the life of me get the darned thing to log onto the domain

    The Mac is OS X version 10.6.2

    Server 2008 Domain and the Mac does appear in the DHCP but not AD

    Time server! Set your Mac to use your network time server, it's usually the Kerberos service denying the login as the clock skew is too great.

    Also - you say you've added it in AD - is that through the Directory Utility in OSX?

    If it is not showing up in AD under the Computers OU then it has not been joined as a workstation, not sure if this means that it has not bound to AD propperly ad 10.4 used to add a computer account to AD also. As 3s-gtech above states make sure that the clocks are aligned to within 5 minutes of each other and I would also try rebindind it to make it show up in AD (they may have changed this bit so not 100% certain on the last bit).

    Thanks 3s-gtech,

    Time now synced - it was 8 minutes out.

    No it's not appearing in AD but is visible in DHCP.

    I added it via the OSX Directory Utility.

    Mac all new to me - steep learning curve!!

    Hope you've managed to progress with this. All I can suggest is removing the Macs from AD and re-adding them - check to see if they appear in the Computers OU then. It's very simple in 10.4-->10.6, and doesn't need further steps unless using OD also.
