DSfW: Mac 10.8 fails to join a DSfW domain

This document (7012046) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Open Enterprise Server 11 SP1
Domain Services for Windows


Mac 10.8  fails to join a DSfW domain
Mac 10.7.x  is able to join a DSfW domain


Macs are not supported with DSfW at this time.
OES 11 SP2 is scheduled to support Mac 10.8 (not earlier versions)
Starting in OES11 SP2 DSfW will support both UDP and TCP along with Mac 10.8 joining a DSfW domain.


Apple has changed the protocol used to query the directory from UDP to TCP.  The standard is UDP and DSfW supports UDP as of OES11.1
