Unbind and Rebind with Mobile Accounts
Posted: 3/20/17 at 4:44 PM by bruth85
I have a user who is on 10.11 who is bound to AD and using a Mobile Profile and needs to change her password. When she tries she receives and error stating "The Password for account "XXXXX" was not changed. The server is not available. Change your password when the server becomes available. She is connected directly to the lan via hard wire so I know she should be able to talk to the server. Doing some research everything I see is pointing to unbinding and rebinding her Mac to the Domain so that it will be able to change password again. It appears that the name on her Mac also didn't get changed so I will need to do that. My question is if I do the unbind and rebind as well as the name change will that mess up anything with the mobile profile? We are dealing with an EVP so I don't want to mess up her profile if I can avoid it.
