Active Directory and binding in Panther (Mac OS X 10.3)

Yes, the ".local" that can be another problem.

From the SBS 2003 Release Notes
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----
Do not use the .local domain name during Setup if you have client computers
running Macintosh OS 10.2
The Macintosh OS 10.2 operating system uses the .local extension for its
Rendezvous service. As a result, client computers running OS 10.2 will be
unable to discover other computers that are members of a Windows Small
Business Server network that uses the .local extension.

If your Windows Small Business Server network contains client computers
running Macintosh OS 10.2 or later, change the default domain name during
Setup to use a domain extension other than .local. For example, you could
use a .lan or .office extension.

For more information, visit the Apple Web site ( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ )and
search the Knowledge Base for the article "Mac OS X 10.2: About Your
Computer's Rendezvous Name."

Active Directory and binding in Panther (Mac OS X 10.3)

Post by Matt » Sun, 18 Apr 2004 07:16:21

Hi all,

i am unable to bind to the Active Directory of my SBS 2003 through Mac OS X
using Directory Access. The config box asks for the AD Forest, AD Domain and
Computer ID (which i assume is the computer name as set in the Users and
Computers section of the AD).

when i punch in the info, i am prompted for a user with privileges to add to
a domain but it always fails with the message "an invalid Domain and Forest
combination was specified, you should enter a FQDNS name for the domain and
forest.

assuming that company-name.local is the value in the Forest and AD Domain
fields, WTF am i missing.
don't know isf this is relevant but ADmitMac couldn't see an AD Domain so is
it possible that my SBS doesn't have one? i thought it did. any help or
pointers would be great.

thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion but it didn't work.

could it have something to do with the '.local' domain suffix?

Had some weird Administrator 'not having sufficient privileges' to join the
box to the domain but got around it and now it works! thanks!

any idea how i go about getting names and email addresses from Outlook on a
client into the server's Directory so that they can be seen by the OS X box
in Address Book?

thanks anyway!

I haven't had the opportunity to play with OSX that much and I haven't been
able to find anything that says you can do what you're asking for with OSX
Address Book. Here's a couple of references that *may* get you a little
further:
