I have a computer running Centrify, which is an AD plugin for Macs for authentication. I’m trying to run my app and found something interesting…
My app has name/password fields in it that saves to a variable, then uses it later. It seems Centrify users (that’s Active Directory plugin) cannot authenticate. If I use a local user name, then authentication works fine.
do shell script “touch /tmp/random.$$” user name “localadmin” password “1234” with administrator privileges
Does not work:
do shell script “touch /tmp/random.$$” user name “ADUser” password “1234” with administrator privileges
I guess this is a problem with how Applescript talks to Open Directory and Centrify doesn’t follow standard Open Directory methods… I’m just wondering if anyone has run into this problem or one similar…
