Bind a Mac to AD.BROWN.EDU
By not tying to a specific domain controller, it allows us to get the first available controller in our setup.
It does requires you to be a Level 1 or Level 2 Delegate (CAP form) in order to bind but I was able to bind using the appropriate DNS entry without picking one of the domain controllers.
User experience tab:
Enter your username and password.For Computer OU, entering the specific path will allow you to drop the computer into the correct OU.
OU Lookup: (requires Shibboleth authentication)http://www.brown.edu/cis/services/support-consultants/lookup/
Enter your credentials.
Check both “Use authentication and contacts”
Note: If the Mac’s clock is off even by a minute or two, it can cause errors that will prevent binding. Make sure the clock is sync’ed.
