IMac :: Connecting To A Windows Domain?

Nov 4, 2010

I have a new 27" i7 iMac with OSX 10.6.4 and need to connect it to our work place network that runs a Windows 2003 Domain Controller etc. I've never touch an Apple/iMac before and I don't know much of anything about them. I'll tell you this much, I LIKE THIS MACHINE! WOW! I really like it! So I'm pretty sure I have it on the network... maybe. But the biggest problem I have is when I log on as the user (and it indicates "Network" under the user name), I can see the network resources, the user folder is available down on the Dock but when I make changes to the Desktop, Dock etc. they don't save when I log out and log back in. So I hope someone here can help point me in the right direction. I have done a lot of Google and other forum search but I'm not really finding my answer.

IMac :: Snow Leopard 10.6.4 Connecting To Windows SBS Server Domain

Aug 19, 2010

I looked for a introduction forum but couldn't see one so hello guys and gals. Great forum you've got here..Right my issue is as follows.I have a new iMac Pro on snow leopard 10.6.4 and it is linked to a Windows SBS server 2007 but i don't think i've done it properly.When i switch the machine on all i get on boot up is 1 local user Sometimes i can leave it and it will offer me the 'Other' option which i can then login to the server But most times it doesn't to that... I have to logon as that local user and then unbind the windows domain and rebind it then when i logoff it shows me the 'Other' user Also another thing thats annoying is it doesn't map anything automatically i have had to create a alias icon on my desktop to go to my server space and it can take up to a minute to connect to the server..

OS X Mavericks :: Connecting Mac (10.9.4) To Windows Domain Printers

Aug 26, 2014

i have been given the task of trying to get mac machines printing on Ricoh printers on a windows network in a small private school. I have gone through the appropriate steps of installing the drivers for the printers through using PxlMono, Foot, Ghost, etc... to make it so I can work without the cards in the printers. 

However, adding the printers to the mac is a whole new problem. The machines are added appropriately to the domain. The necessary printers are now showing up in the open directory portion of the adding printers window. However, upon trying to add them, it states the following: An error occurred while trying to add the selected device.

Bad device-uri "smb://****-DC1.****.loc/High School Workroom RICOH". 

Are the spaces in the name creating issues? There is another printer on the network that worked with a different mac that appears to have spaces in the name as well. Adding with IPP doesn't, saying that there was an error with it and asks if i want to install it anyway. If I do install it anyway, it becomes unresponsive regardless. I've even gone through the CUPS menu in port 631 and tried adding with IPP that way, and it still doesn't work. I'm about to go insane trying to get these dang things to print. I have 5 different macs trying to connect for 4-5 printers each for this craziness.

Dec 30, 2010

i have a machine in a workgroup called 21. the machine name is icey.i have a domain called avery. i am able to access files on the domain from icey but when i try to connect to a printer it says i dont have sufficient access. the printer in question is a resource on a machine called marble. and the printer itself is called new_printer and yes its being shared. actually i cannot connect to any printers on the domain from icey.

everyone on the domain can access the all printers however no one from 21 can connect to it. it was necessary for me to build 21 but it is still important for 21 to be able to use avery resources. is there any way i can get this to connect?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: What Benefits Are There To Joining A Windows Domain

Mar 9, 2012

My company has one mac user with a Macbook Air, we have a Windows 2008 r2 domain.I'm wondering if it is worth joining him to the domain, what benefits are there for a mac user? We use Exchange 2007 and change our passwords every 90 days.One concern is when the user is out of the office the cached password can become out of sync with the domain password.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Join MS Windows Server 2008 Domain

Mar 17, 2012

I recently purchased a new MacBook pro with Mac OS X, I updated the OS to the latest release which is 10.7.3. I need to join (bind) a MS Windows server 2008 Domain, but when I try to bind I get below error:

Unable to add server.

The daemon encountered an error processing request (10002)

I searched the internet for a solution; most suggestions refer to sync the clock with the domain clock as Kerberos protocol is unable to authenticate. I cannot find a option to sync the clock with the domain clock, how I do that?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Computer Id In File Sharing Is The Old One Before Joined Windows Domain?

May 24, 2012

I just installed Lion 10.7.4 named my computer "fx6800". Then I joined my Windows 2003 Server domain with no problems. After that I could not log on to domain with one of my windows 7 machines because it had the same computer ID. Ok no problem I re joined the domain and re binded with the Win 7 machine and then un binded my Mac Lion machine then re-binded with a different computer ID. No problem both machines can log on to AD with separate computer accounts. Then I notice when I opened terminal it was showing the old computer ID. No problem I fixed it With sudo scutil --set HostName "new host name".  

Then when I go to select file sharing in the description to the right under File Sharing On: it shows the path to tha machine is fx6800.domainname.local which is the original computer ID. Also when I select remote login and I believe it shows username@fx6800.domainname.local. I have searched for 2 days and have not come up with anything. I am sure if I reinstall everything it should fix it but I would like to save the time.

Windows On Mac :: Bought Airport Extreme - Need Connecting On Windows

Jan 9, 2010

Ok, I feel like a doofus, but I need some help if someone is willing.

I bought an Airport Extreme and installed per instructions on the Mac partition. The Extreme replaces an Express as the base unit, the express now extends the range of the network (and is now connected to my stereo system). So, the "new" network that was set up has the exact same name as the old one when it was just the Express.

Everything works fine on the mac side. When I go to my Win XP side (Boot camp) it sees the network but says it cannot connect. To put is simply, I can't remeber what I need to do. I haven't had to mess with this stuff since I set it up almost 2 years ago. Do I need to set up a new network?... I am just drawing a blank. Is keeping the same name for the "new" network part of my problem?

IMac :: IMac Freezes When Connecting External Monitor?

Apr 8, 2008

I have a newer iMac 24" bought in 11/2007. I have the mini-dvi to vga converter and when I connect it to a external tv capable of 1024x768, the iMac freezes and does nothing. I disconnect and the screen turns blue and the flickers back on and everything works. I have made the connection then booted up, and I have tried every resolution all the way down to 640x480, same thing it just locks up the screen, but again as soon as I unplug the mini-dvi to vga cable from the iMac it flicks to a blue screen and everything comes back. I have reviewed dmesg nothing, and revieiw /var/log/messages. Is there any troubleshooting I can do. I am old school unix/linux guy just converted my family to Apple and would like to use the display on my tv to watch my iTunes movies.

OS :: Connecting To OS X 10.6.5 From Windows Vista

Nov 13, 2010

I have a Mac Mini running OS X 10.6.5, and a Windows Vista SP2 laptop. I sync my iPhone to the Mini, so all my photos and videos are saved there. Now, I want to be able to access the Mini from Vista on the laptop. Windows Sharing is on, and in Vista I select Run-> "" (the IP address of the Mini), and an explorer window pops up asking me for a password. I enter the password for the administrator account I use to log in on the Mini, "user1" and "blahblah", where "user1" is the user ID, not the name associated with the account, i.e. "John Doe".

OS X :: Connecting From Windows To A Mac Mini Box

Dec 30, 2010

I have a mac mini that I have connected to my LCD TV in the living room. This works fantastically. I just love this little box, it has all my content that I play on the TV. But I don't want to handle the keyboard every single time I want to listen to music or watch a video. So I want a way to connect from my HP laptop (Windows vista) to the mac mini remotely and operate the mac mini from my sofa where I have the laptop. If both my machines were mac, this is easy as there is remote sharing. But if my laptop is Hp windows, then what should I do? Is there some vpn thing that will work? I tried searching etc but am not sure what I need to search for here.

OS X :: SL Options For Connecting With Windows 7

Aug 11, 2010

Previously I was running Windows XP and one of my XP drives was shared on the network and the various Macs (Leopard) that I was running. The Macs had no issues connecting via the networking/file sharing. As soon as I upgraded XP to Windows 7, I noticed a significantly slower time to connect to the drive (a couple minutes). Once I installed Snow Leopard on one of the Macs (rest still running Leopard), that time increased to about 4 minutes to connect. This drive needs to be shared amongst PCs and Macs, and I tried to use SMB, but nothing seems to solve the issue why it takes so long to connect. All the Mac updates have been installed. How can I make it faster so I'm not sitting for 4 minutes every time I need to connect?
