Anyone using OS 10.8.2 and Active Directory, and successful login and account creation
Posted: 11/13/12 at 5:02 PM by johnklimeck
Is anyone having success with this, or is most everyone still using OS 10.7.5
Can successfully bind a clean 10.8.2 image with dsconfigad, mobile enable, to Windows AD 2008 R2, all is good there.
Can login with valid AD user, but OS X does not really finish the process. The Finder hangs (Finder icon bounces in the dock, no Apple menu bar, and question mark icons in the dock. The local account is never created, can login as admin and check with dcxl, no user, no home directory.
This does not happen in 10.8.0, or 10.7.5 (separate issue and topic thread for 10.7.5).
Total deal breaker for us. Have logged a bug with Apple and spoken to an Apple engineer. Can reproduce everytime, and this is not the OS X image. A brand new image downloaded directly from Apple (Recovery HD) on i7 MacBook Pro.
