Ok, if you're having trouble with credentials on the new Directory interface try these steps to Join an AD network, they are plain and simple. Here they are...
1. Go to the Directory Utility -> /Applications/Utilities/
2. Click the Advanced Settings Button -> Buttons should appear on the top
3. Click Services
4. Make sure you're authenticated to makes changes -> click the lock and login
5. Double-click the Active Directory
6. type in your domain in "Active Directory Domain" -> ex. (mydomain.com) watch out if your
domain ends with .local opposed to .com or .net, you need to disable bonjour if it ends with .local.
7. click bind
8. enter in username and password -> just the username NOT email@example.com or MYDOMAIN\User
9. Click ok.
10. You're done. Good luck.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5)

As i remember that i created a computer name for my mac in AD first. click Application->utilities->directories where you can click on AD service protocol. I think i takes awhile to go through all 5 steps. Good luckmacbook pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2007 10:16 PM (in response to Kildjean)Hi Kildjean,
I have had all the issues you describe and have resolved the problem by doing a clean install of Leopard, then, DO NOT BIND TO AD, download the update to 10.5.1, restart, then bind to AD. More detail at another discussion:
Hope this helps.

Need some help asap.Still getting same error when i am trying to add my Mac to our domain. our domain always been using .org ( so no .local) and working fin under Tiger.
i have checked everything, different login syntax, domain syntax, tried to create different at different OU in AD but still unknown error or password error.
The only thing i wasn't sure was the syntax or the actual Binding query to LDAP:
Still same result, please advise...
Thanks for your help,

Currently Being ModeratedJan 28, 2008 11:25 AM (in response to Kildjean)I found the answer by using the following values in the Services tab in Directory Utility:
username: firstname.lastname@example.org (DO NOT FORGET THE .COM)
active directory domain: domainname.com (DO NOT FORGET THE .COM)
FYI, I am also running Mac OS 10.5.1black macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 2 GHz Intel Core Duo, 2 GB Ram, 80 GB hard drive
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2008 11:35 AM (in response to altagracia)I am happy to announce that I tried what someone suggested in another post which worked:
1. I did a fresh install of Leopard. Updated to 10.5.1
2. I added the computer name I was planning on using into AD first.
3. In leopard, I added the IP of our main domain controller instead of letting the OS choose (Prefer this domain controller)
4. I unchecked allow authentication from any domain controller in the forest
5. I added our domain to the directory servers page
6. Was able to bind to the domain no problem after all of thisMacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
