Hi Brian, Lynn,
As far as Linux client, this is not my issue for now, I believe the Linux setup
is quite straight forward and the password change at first login seems to work
without an issue.
My main concern is on Mountain Lion 10.8.x,
At this point I've managed to bind the OSX machine to the IPA server without
any issue following this guide:
I also have all the autmounts configured via LDAP using this:
https://ssl.apple.com/business/docs/Autofs.pdf on page 16.
My main issue right now seems to be at the GUI login. The applet shows up for
password change but doesn't seem to do anything. When I press continue the
applet comes back and this goes in a loop until I hit "Cancel".
My IPA versions are as follows:
As mentioned in my first post, if I make the password change at the terminal
prompt, I am then able to login without a password change prompt.
Not sure if I'll be able to go through this issue unless someone as already
