Terminal command to bind to AD

Is there a terminal command to bind and Apple iMac (OS 10.8.3) to my Active directory using the AdmitMac v7 plug in.

eddie,

You can bind, unbind, and verify using the amconfig command line utility. To see the usage statement, simply launch the Terminal and enter:
Code: Select all
sudo amconfig


Here's an example of joining the Mac to a domain:
Code: Select all
sudo amconfig -a -d DOMAIN.NET -u username -p password -c MYCOMPUTER

This will join the Mac to the default "Computers" OU of the domain with the default settings (Network home folder, NTLM only, etc.).

If you have more detailed questions, please feel free to contact us at support@thursby.com.
