||Panther and Active Directory|
|Subject:||Great article - watch DNS reverse lookups!|
We finally figured out some issues related to binding our Panther Macs. Works great now (haven't tested single-sign on for shares yet, though). However, a few systems wouldn't bind, despite performing the exact same steps as other systems. It turns out this was because those systems had a DNS "cname" (alias) that differs from its "true" hostname. Well, we just used that name instead (created it in Active Directory Users and Computers) when binding. Works fine.
