user account – authentication is disabled – How to verify whether this is local disabling or Active Directory disabling

Spread the love


I have a Macbook Pro that uses ActiveDirectory for authentication. However, when I go to System Preferences to make changes, it gives me the following error:


If I run dscl . -read /Users/<username> AuthenticationAuthority, everything seems to be ok but I think that the local password has become out of sync with ActiveDirectory.

Is there a way to tell my local account to resync with ActiveDirectory?

Or is there a different interpretation of what might be going on?

I tried this soln (seen here root> Sysadminctl -secureTokenOff <username> -password <AD-pwd> interactive but am not able to disable my own SecureToken.
