Hi all, this is my first post so apologies if this topic has been covered before.

Our organisation has just purchased our first Mac Pro with Tiger 10.4 installed and we were hoping have it as part of our domain. What we have done so far:

On the Server (Windows 2003)
Created a computer account for the Mac within Active Directory
On the Mac Pro
Configured all the necessary steps within the System Preferences (Sharing & Network tabs)
Configured all the necessary steps within “Directory Access”

(as advised here:

All looks fine, we get an IP address via the network DHCP server, we can ping all domain servers, we can access network shares via the “Connect to Server” option (either with a Domain or Client account).

What we can’t do is login to the Mac with a domain account; we can only login using local accounts.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
