Joining a NetApp Filer to a PDC on OS X 10.5/10.6 – Unsolved

Posted on 08 September 2009

NetApp (OnTap 7.3.1.1) is not able to join with authentication on an NT4 Domain or Samba PDC. In order to join the Filer to such a Domain the machine account needs to be created before. That works so far on a normal Samba PDC. But this does not work on a Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6 Server.

I tried to add the machine to the OpenDirectory before. The Filer messages shows that the connection gets terminated during the join process. This was very frustrating as you can imagine. Losing your connection is very annoying, whether you’re going through a tunnel on a train with your O2 Dell Streak Mobile broadband or a network connection cannot be forged. This is a real bugbear of mine and I am determined to fix it.

Samba on Mac OS X does  ot show anything helpful:
