I am using macOS 10.12, Sierra, and I've two local accounts (the one created during unboxing and a backup one).
This is a work laptop and I would like to use my Active Directory credentials to login instead of the loca account. I would also like to get integrated network login etc... but this would be a bonus, it's not a requirement.
I've followed Join your Mac to a network account server and read Best Practices for Integrating OS X with Active Directory.
I can easily join the Mac to the domain and can use AD Utilities to browse objects inside the domain so I assume it's working. Now I cannot find how to 'link' my existing local account to a specific AD account.
The accounts are:
- local account: simoneavogadro (/Users/simoneavogadro) display "Simone Avogadro"
- Active directory account: simoneavogadro ([email protected]) display name: "Simone Avogadro"
Currently, if I logout & login I must use the local password to login. The AD one will not work. This makes sense to me since I can't find how to 'link' the two things (how to tell the Mac which AD Object to bind for login)
