OS X Server :: Creating Active Directory Users From Workgroup Manager

May 3, 2005

I'm trying to setup our xserve so our clients will authenticate against AD but have their prefs managed by OSX Server. So far I've got the clients logging on ok,group folders mount nicely and I can see AD users and groups from workgroup manager. But when I try to add a home directory for an AD user I get - 'Got unexpected error Error of type -14140 on line 1127 of'. I get the same if I try to create a new active directory user so it looks like workgroup manager is having problems writing to the active directory.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Connecting To 10.7 Server Via SMB And Active Directory?

Feb 9, 2012

I am running a 10.7.3 Lion Server bound to Active Directory.  There are only several local admin users on the machine; everyone else authenticates against AD.  AFP connections work fine, using both local and AD accounts.  SMB connections work fine if you use a local account but any AD account is rejected as having the wrong password when connecting via SMB.  I've tried using the adusername trick (our AD server is named "ad") even though you're not supposed to need that with 10.7.2 and above... it doesn't help. 

I have tried both a Windows 7 client and a 10.6 client, specifying SMB as the protocol in the Connect To Server dialog.  Both fail, and they also take several minutes before reporting the bad password (the slowness in responding is yet another problem I've read as being an issue).  Checking the kdc.log file on the server I see: 

2012-02-09T09:54:22 digest-request netr: failed user=AD\dlennie DC status code c000006d
2012-02-09T09:54:22 digest-request: netr failed with -1073741715 proto=ntlmv2
2012-02-09T09:54:22 digest-request: od failed with 2 proto=ntlmv2


I am using the full DNS name for the server, and on my test clients there are no firewalls or other network issues that would prevent connection to the server. We're mostly Macs here but the Windows users become a rather vocal group when something doesn't go their way.  The confusing part to me is that AFP authenticates just fine and SMB doesn't.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Active Directory Pass-Through Authentication?

Apr 19, 2012

I have been reading through the Lion Server pages for Active Directory and came across the following question. Does the procedure listed in the URL below allow the users whose Macs are joined to the OS X server, to login with Active Directory credentials. Pass-through auth. for lack of a better term. [URL]...The procedure reads as if it is just joining the server to the domain and not configuring authentication.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Active Directory And Local Admin Account?

Jun 27, 2012

We have a local Admin account on all Macs, enterprise wide, for local and remote administration.

All Macs are joined to Active Directory. Our users DO NOT have Admin rights. 

On ALL our LION Macs (10.7.4), when joined to Active Directory, we lose functionality to the local Admin account.

We can log into the local Admin account, but the desktop is useless. Nothing opens. We cannot create any files/folders without getting an Access Denied error.

AND then best part... everything on the Desktop, files/folders, are gone! Almost like a bran spankin' new account. With no access to anything locally.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Can't Log In To Profile Manager Or My Devices With Active Directory Login

May 21, 2012

I have an OSX Lion 10.7.4 Server set up with Profile Manager and it is joined to AD. 

I am able to see AD groups in the Profile Manager groups section. I can also see and add AD users and groups using the server app. 

I have enabled the "Can Enable Remote Management" check box for Domain Users through Profile Manager. I have also added Domain Admins to the Workgroup group in the Server app. I'm not sure that I want or need either of these options, but they were suggestions to try. I am not able to log on to the Profile Manager or My Devices pages with AD logins. 

I found these directions about nested groups in Workgroup Manager [URL] but I don't have a [URL] local group or any groups like are shown in the picture.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Server Loses Active Directory Binding?

May 15, 2012

I am running an open directory/active directory network.  Authentication is from the Windows server 2003 active directory.  It has worked fine until the last month. Now clients stop authenticating & when I  check the AD plugin it says network accounts are not available.  I can force the server to unbind, then renew the binding & everything works great.Is there any work around or fix for this other than upgrading the windows server to 2008?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Why Are New Directory Users Unable To Login To IChat/jabberd

May 3, 2012

I have a couple of new users I've added to our directory recently. They are unable to connect to our internal jabber (iChat) server. Users that have connected previously are experiencing no difficulty. A quick overview of the layout of the system: two XServes, one is OD primary (aspen) the other is OD replica and iChat server (vail). I've modded some config files (long ago) to allow user IDs for jabber to be instead of It works quite nicely. 

Excerpt from the logs shows a failed login attempt followed by a successful login attempt. Successful logins are happening from Messages (beta), iChat under Snow Leopard, and Pidgin under windows. Failing logins are all from iChat under Snow Leopard. Please ask questions, I'm happy to add any other pertinent data! May  3 16:21:45 vail jabberd/c2s[99718]: [13] [::ffff:, port=52584] connectMay  3 16:21:47 vail jabberd/c2s[99718]: [13] [::ffff:, port=52584] disconnect jid=unbound,

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Configure Wiki Server On It?

Mar 15, 2012

Right now I am able to view my Wiki data only through [URL] when I try [URL] I get a 404 Not Found. One thing that I think is interesting is that [URL] and [URL] both give me the "Welcome to Lion Server" page. I enabled the Wiki service and the Web service both through the Server application. My first thought was that I needed to configure a "Web Site" under the Web service to point to the proper directory location (such as in Snow Leopard Server).  I've tried several different directories for the "Store Site Files In" field, such as "/Library/Server/Web/Data/Sites/Default" and "/usr/share/collabd/coreclient/public" to no avail. The Lion Server documentation shows how to migrate wikis, but I didn't see anything about configuring the service (either in the Wiki service or the Web service).

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD LDAP Connects To Lion Server But Does Not Show Users / Groups

Feb 19, 2012

I have a server in our DMZ that connects to Active Directory LDAP server (non-ssl over 389) but no objects actually show up in the directory editor. I get a green light in my Network Account Server, but queries against LDAP return no results. My end goal is to be able to dictate to Profile Manager what LDAP groups are allowed to enroll devices. I tested on our internal network on a test server and get the same results. Anyone have any luck connecting a Lion Server to LDAP and actually being able to view and utilize users and groups?

Mac OS X :: Way To Configure SSL For Lion Server

May 25, 2012

I am new to Lion Server and OS X in general (especially Terminal and all the Unix Commands), used to Windows Server where this is a basic no-brainer in IIS Admin Tools. How can I setup the Lion Server Wiki/WebMail/and other built in webpages to run over SSL. Not sure if Apache would support SSL Hostheaders like IIS does though but if not I have a few

I have a valid externally trusted cert, changed the host name to the external name etc. The router is forwarding fine but for my life I cannot find the UI piece where I can tell all the web pages to accept SSL requests.I created a Website in the Web Pane and pointed it at 443 and that works fine so I know the router talks to the right box

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Adding User To Home Directory?

May 23, 2012

On my Mac Mini, I have set up a new user because of problems with the OS. So far, it is working fine. I also have a G5 running OS 10.4.11. There is an account on both machines with the same name. However, the new account on the Mini is a different name. The G5 does not offer the "login as" (at least that I can see, so my access to the new account on the Mini is limited to a dropbox. To simplify: A is the account on both the Mini and the G5, B is the account only on the Mini. I tried extending the permissions on B's home directory, but that did not work. Using get info, I unlocked the file then tried to add A to the list of users. For some reason, nothing happened. 

How can I give user A permission to access user B's home directory on the Mini?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change User Account Name Or Home Directory Name?

May 15, 2012

I've a user who has been given a company shared MacBook Air. The account name was previously our company name, but I've sucessfully followed the guide [URL] to change this. Thus, the username is now now his firstname & lastname. The home folder is firstnamelastname. However, the old username (our company name) is still showing up as the username for some email recipients and airdrop.I'm guessing the email name might be saved localy on a few of the users contacts since he's been sending a few emails before the user name was updated. Can this be confirmed in any way?

Hey everyone, i'm starting to learn active directory in windows server 2003 but what i want to do with parallels if possible is setup a XP VM so i can see the effect of the changes/rules i setup in active directory.

Is this possible within Parallels or is it a pipe dream as it would be a fantastic learning tool.

The hardware it would be running on is a 24inch 1st gen iMac with 2GB of Ram.

What do you guys think and if it can be done what do i need to make sure of when it comes to setting up parallels?
