View Full Version : Lost Ability to Authenticate with Windows Domain Controller
07-17-2006, 01:09 PM
I have a machine that will no longer authenticate with the Windows 2003 Domain Controller. It isn't one user, nobody can login. It just hangs with the loggin-in progress bar. The only way to get on is to login as a local root or admin. I've deleted the Active Directory account and added it back on the Windows side, unbound, deleted, added back, and rebound on the Mac side. Not sure what else to try. When logged-in locally, I am able to "connect to" or mount afp and smb shares on that same Windows 2003 domain controller/file server, and it does accept the authentication challenge using that means. Any suggestions?

After the failures, are there any messages on the system log? If you turn on Remote Login, you can ssh into the box as the local admin and 'tail' the log file.

Something, but not much...

Tried it again fresh, a couple more lines this time about ntpd. I thought it could be time sync, but the date command returns something very close.
