  • 3. Reset network settings - trouble.
    Hi I have a iMac with Tiger on it, and have set it up to log in and use an AD domain on W2003. I mistakenly changed the DNS setting incorrectly. Now I can not get into change it back. I have reset the RootUser password, but when logged on as this it will not let me change any settings. It says type in a valid admin name and password - whcih is quite frustrating. (I have tried a combi of everything I can think of, Win or Mac) Obviously I cannot log in with a windows logon, as DNS is not working and hence will not authenticate. I feel really stuck. Is this because I did not use the local account RootUser to make any changes to the networking setting? Now the domain is unavailable I have no available admins? Why does the local RootUser not work? Thanks Lewej
  • 4. Is the EZQuest Monsoon 250 GB external Firewire/USB 2 HD any good?
    I am looking into buying an EZQuest Monsoon 250 GB external Firewire/USB 2.0 hard drive as a portable solution to backup my 20" 1.25 GHz iMac and my wife's 800 MHz TiBook. I have scoured the web for reviews to see if it's any good, too loud, breaks down easily, etc., but it must be too new for there are no reviews out there. Does anyone know anything about this drive or brand? Also, it's 8" long -- isn't that a little big? It's one of those no-fan types -- isn't that a good thing? I probably will not keep it plugged in all the time, just long enough to backup once a week.

OSX Easily Binds to Active Directory BUT there are permission problems

OSX Easily Binds to Active Directory BUT there are permission
problems..

Unless I set everyone to a domain admin the OSX users to log in to the
domain view their mac machines don't have access to their home
directory or their public share directory.

they can view it, navigate to it but they can not save to it.  any file
they open is "read-only" and whenever they try to copy files over they
get a permission error.

anyone have a similar problem?

getting the osx machiens to connect to AD only took 5 minutes.  it was
extremely easy.

thanks

Hi Jaycob!

This sounds like you may have the server shares set to read-only. 
Microsoft best practices for shares is to set the permissions of the 
"share" to full access for Everyone and then control access to its 
contents with NTFS permissions.

Hope this helps! bill

Would that keep OSX from working correctly permission wise but XP
working correctly?

When we connect via XP the permissions are fine.  OSX is sometimes not
even allowing us to connect to the server.

oh, one more thing.

we actually had it working when we gave the osx users domain admin
rights.  they were then able to save wherever they wanted to. :)

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,




Can you provide an example of the path you have set for the network home 
folder for one of your user accounts?

Is this user's home folder a Windows share? If so, what are the users, 
groups and permissions for the share? Also, what are the users, groups 
and permissions for the folder you're sharing?

1.Mac OSX Active Directory Connection

I'm trying to connect a Mac running OSX 10.3.9 to an Active Directory on a
2003 Server using Directory Access. When I click on bind I get prompted for
the Network Administrator Username and Password. Here I enter the 2003
Server's Administrator account details. It goes through the motion of
binding but then responds with:

Insufficent Privileges

The administrator account you specified does not have the appropriate
privileges to perform the requested operation.

Can anyone give me any ideas what I'm doing wrong.

Many Thanks in advance.

2.Mac OSX and Active Directory with remote profiles

Can any one help with a issue of getting macs to run via Active Directory

3.Keeping Desktop Settings in OSX When Joining A Domain / Active Directory

Using Open Directory we were easily able to have all the OSX machines
join our office domain for authentication.

It was actually extremely easy.

But we have a problem now with migration.  All the mac users have been
using their machines for a while now and have customized their desktop,
etc.

How can we keep these settings for them when updating their computer to
join the domain?  We tried copying their user folder but OSX is telling
us (even local admin accounts) that we do no have access to their user
directories.

Is this possible?

Thanks

4.Active Directory / OSX Panther (10.3.1)

Hello:

I am having a heck of a time integrating Active Directory (Server 2003) and
Mac OS Panther (10.3.1).  Every time I try and connect to the forest/domain,
I get an error message stating:

"An invalid Domain and Forest combination was specified.  You should enter a
fully qualified DNS name for the domain and forest."

However, I can ping the domain and domain controller with no problems.  I
can also browse the AD with an LDAP browser with no problem.

This is using the Active Directory Plug-In within "Directory Access".

Does anyone have experience with this, and a possible solution?

Thanks!

5.Mac OSX Panther authenticating on active directory

Hello,

Just wondered if anyone could help.

I have an OSX Panther imac added to my win 2003 active
directory.Everything is fine, I can log on as anyone from the directory
and rpint, access files etc.

But, everytime I log in I'm asked two questions....


1 - Would I like to enable workstation management
2 - would I like to create a mobile account

I think workstation management is some sort of remote desktop app
supplied with osx server(which we don't have)

Mobile access is a sort of roaming profile thing.

How do I disable these prompts, I've tried clicking the remember choice
option for workstation management but osx always forgets..

Please help.
