    I've managed to connect a mac to our active directory. I would like to be able to login as an AD user but it won't let me.

    I found these instructions here

    At the moment in Drectory utility I have the following services...

    Active Directory
    BSD Flast file and NIS

    I seem to be missing the other from that page like SMB/CIFS

    I've tried login in as domainname\user but it doesn't work.

    Tanks for your reply, I think I found the problem, I made a local user with the same username as the active directory user. When I logged in as someone else in AD in logged in fine!
