View Full Version : Active Directory Issues

5th September 2005, 09:05 AM
Got an interesting problem atm:

One out of 5 active directory integrated Macs I look after has decided to not authenticate users anymore. I have ruled out a user acount problem as the the other 4 macs are fine.

I am able to repeatedly bind/rebind the machine to the AD without a problem, but when the user logs on, the access denied shaky thing happens.

Why would it let me bind/unbind to the AD but then not let me login to it?

A few questions;

Are they all running exactly the same OS? (including security updates?)

Have you done all the normal maintenance things, such as permissions repair?

Are you only running one AD server, or is there more than one? (and thus the possibibility of an obscure replication problem)

Have you checked that there is no local account with the same user name?
