Joining a Mac to a new windows domain - HELP !!
We've been banging our heads for the last couple of days on this, so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
We are in one of my Primary Schools. We've just installed a replacement Windows 2003 R2 server. It's running as the Domain Controller, DHCP and DNS.
The Macs ( both Macbooks wirelessly and iMacs cabled) are running Leapard 10.5.6. When we try to bind the mac to the domain it takes ages, asks for the local admin password half way through , then eventually binds. The computer account shows up in AD but you can't log on to the mac with a domain account. Are we missing something? Someone said there was something you had to chance on the server but didn't know exactly what it was.
I've rejoined the same mac back to the old domain and it rejoins straight away and logs on so I think the problem is with the new server.
ANy help would be great.. we had a week for this server install. We're now at the end of that week with no signs of getting the new server in today.
I should also mention, there are about 50 windows computers too, which is why we have a Windows server, a few selected as test machines all join the new domain fine. Money was a factor so weren't allowed to get a Mac server to manage the macs along with the windows server.
