Known Issue with OS X 10.6 binding to Active Directory when LDAP signing is required
Apple Support states that there are no reports of Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) clients successfully binding to AD when LDAP signing is required. The majority of reports from Apple shows that upgrading to Mac OS X 10.7 or above is the only resolution to this issue.
Important Note: On Sunday September 29, 2013 Campus Active Directory will require LDAP signing and OS X 10.6 clients will no longer be able to bind and authenticate to Campus Active Directory. Again, the only remediation for this issue is to upgrade to at least OS X 10.7.
Campus Active Directory support for Mac OS X 10.6 will continue to be "Best Effort" and support for binding and authenticating to the directory will not be supported.
