MAC Time wandering causing issues with authentication with AD
Please if there is a God someone have and answer to this question.
We were bullied by our Music Department into buying MAC's. (Snow Leopard)
To ensure we could track user logins we have joined them to our Active Directory Domain, this all worked out fine until we noticed that the clock was wandering randomly so much so it stopped people logging on to the domain.
The upshot is we are getting phone calls some times weekly with complaints people cannot log on.
Once you log on locally reset the clock all is well.
Tried setting the time service to point at Apple and our own Time Server to no avail.
Our Senior tech is about to throw them in the bin (or make shiny book ends), very frustrating.
Anyone with an answer - greatly appreciated.
P.S any MAC lovers about to blame windows or say it's not really broken it's a feature please do not post.
Don't get me wrong I think MACs have a place but it is worrying when a device cannot keep it's clock in sync.
