Cannot log on to my Macintosh computer.
Set the computer clock to the correct time, or rebind the Macintosh to the Domain, or disconnect the Macintosh from network to log on.
Rebind Mac to the Domain
Mac OSX does not update the local clock until after log on, but Active Directory does not allow log on unless the server clock and the computer clock are within a few minutes of each other. Most Macintoshes that are bound to a domain are setup with a "mobile" account, allowing the user to log in when not connected to the network. The Mobile Account feature was designed for notebook computers, but most desktop computers on AD are also configured for Mobile accounts. Logging in while disconnected uses cached account information. Be sure to check the clock.
