in my case, I got this error when tried to Bind MacBook Pro to Windows Domain. I had to shorten Mac Computer name by few characters to make it work. I guess there is a limitation in Windows AD on computer names.

Unfortunately the computer name and host name can get out of sync. Open a terminal window and use sudo hostname <new hostname> to change the hostname. Once executed, it changes the system configuration, so the new hostname will be there when you reboot. Also, be aware that some DHCP servers will assign a hostname. Depending on the network you ...

Mobile Account home directory trees are stored locally (normally under /Users) but are synced with a home directory tree on the server. Other than local files for the user home (which is good if you are using programs that depend on local disk for performance or other reasons), I can't remember any special properties other than the fact that you have two ...

I have resolved this problem. I was specifying SERVERNAME in the command. I used to enter something like: SERVER.DOMAIN.Local (as we have *.local domain). Turns out, I had to enter just DOMAIN.Local.

Apple does not have just one server for hosting. I'm sure that they have many such servers all over the world. You can find this information on Apple's Support site.

On a Mac, in the reply message, notice that the From: line has the down-pointing triangle that indicates that it's a menu. Clicking on it reveals a menu of all the email addresses you have configured. Select the one you want. The response will be sent through the SMTP server you have associated with the account corresponding to that email address. On the ...

Do you have "Force local home directory on startup disk" checked?

There’s /bin/hostname which prints the name of the machine, either including the domain (which is the default mode of operation) or without it. (I couldn’t verify that it really does that because I have no idea where to configure the domain name of my machine. :)

I got this problem this afternoon and was able to resolve it after some googling and poking around local setup. Here is what I found. There is very informative discussion here, unfortunately I did not have enough patience to try every single thing suggested there, and found that solution to my problem was listed there towards the end of discussion.

A quick check that I will use is the id username command in terminal, replacing username with a user other than the one you are logged in with. For example, if I'm logged in as SJobs I would instead use the query id TCook, assuming that TCook is another user within the domain but not on this computer. This will attempt to query the domain for the specified ...

Macs don't store configuration information in flat files like most historical UNIX systems do and instead rely on various directory services. Depending on how you configure the services (and which version of OS you run), the actual storage mechanism and location varies. What will work is simply making a shell script to dump all the network information you ...

Here is my partial success so far. I was able to setup Kerberos authentication but only on Firefox and Google Chrome, on Safari it doesn't work and it seems to be impossible to make it work without really joining the domain.

When this periodically happened to me, it had to do with permissions being incorrect in the following areas, preventing me from making changes: In Snow Leopard (10.6) and later Open ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist in a plist editor Find the section favoriteservers Remove listings for those stubborn locations In Tiger (10.5) and earlier (...

Not understanding whats exactly your problem. Maybe this can help you. If you set the search option, in your own config (network->advanced->dns->search domains) or by your dhcp server. You basically eliminate the need to add this part to a fqdn. Example: search: foo.com then, ping test would try to resolve test.foo.com So, in your case that ...
