Hi all

I am very new to the MAC world after having a G4 Powerbook put on my desk to fix. Basically 1 month ago is how new I am.

I have integrated the Powerbook (Tiger 10.4.6) into our Windows domain and configured the MAC to authenticate to the domain so that users can login with their domain logon and then have mobile accounts created. In Directory Access I have added domain security groups as local Admins on the MAC. The problem is that, when a user who belongs to one of the groups logs on, everything works except getting the Admin privileges. They just show as a "Managed Mobile" user instead of Admin.

Configured services are:

Active Direcory plugin bound to a domain computer account
LDAP
Netinfo
SMB
SLP

Authentication is to AD first then LDAP

Thanks for any help

Chris

Hi Simon

I have only looked in the Apple support pages. As we do not have any OSX servers, I'm not sure how the article will help but I will definitely review it. The problem revolves more around the Powerbook not getting inherited permissions from Active Directory. It is configured to use the AD plugin not Open Directory.

Thanks for any help
