can anybody help mi with binding Lion Servers Open Directory to Windows Active Directory?
I Have setuped Windows 2008 Server and Windows 2003 Server. On both is full working Active Directory. The clients can conect to it (win).
I would lice to have some Mac clients and will setuped Lion server an in Open Directory I have set to connect to another server. Then in Directory Utility I will set the connection to AD Server over Connect in File menu and I have only error mesage "Can't connect to the server - Directory Services may not be installed on the remote server, they may be turned off, or the URL may have been entered incorrectly." and then I try the connection over Services - Active Directory and have error mesage "Authentication server could not be contacted." too.
Can somebody help me with setting Lion Server to connect to Win Active Directory?
Let's assume you have things setup correct and try this way:
On the Lion Server.
- System Preferences
- Users and Groups
- Login Options (click the lock to Authenticate)
- Network Account Server and click Edit...
- Click on the +
- Enter your AD domain name like apple.local or whatever it is for you.
More options should drop down, enter whichever account lets you bind to the network (you don't need the domain\username just username).
I'm at a machine that's already bound to the domain but I think there rest is fairy straight forward.
