View Full Version : Calling all AD integration experts!!!

I am having an issue with logging users in with there Active Directory credentials over a wireless connection.

I have bound 10.3.8 ibooks to the AD and when connected to the lan work perfectly. When the ibooks are booted without a LAN over wireless, users cannot log in to the AD (justs keeps shaking the login window like its a wrong password) However, if you log in with a local account and log straight back out it, the AD logins work and and i can't replicate the problem.

It seems like the airport card/wireless is not activated on boot until a user is logged in. Is there anyway of making sure the wireless is enabled before the login window displays?

your correct.
you can connect to a wireless network until you log in which makes it impossible to login to a AD server before loging into a local account first.

i have no solution and have not heard of one

Perhaps using machine based certs for wireless authentication might solve the problem?? Well, thats what we're in the process of doing with Windows.
