Mac OS X 10.4 and later:
Open the Network preference pane in System Preferences. Select the desired network interface and click Configure. Add "local" to the Search Domains field. If you have multiple entries in this field, be sure that "local" is first, and separate them with commas. For example:
local, apple.comPowerBook G4 867; Active Directory; IAS, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 1GB RAM

Yes! I have done it both ways but still the same thing. Now, something interesting, since I'm in the initial setup of the Domain, I decided to reconfigure it to be mydomain.net, instead of mydomain.local. Now I try to bind and I get an error saying that the DNS name forest is incorrect. However, I cannot change the Directory forest from the default value, which is Automatic. So now, I wonder if its that the domain name needs to be set to my.domain.net rather than mydomain.net. I'm lost here.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2007 9:37 PM (in response to Daurys Nolasco)Well, I guess I fixed the whole thing. I added FQDN and Computer name, and everything to the Search Domain field in the Network settings on System Properties, and that seemed to fix the problem.
Thank you all for your support.
