Question 389-ds and Mac OS X Authentication

Hi folks,
I've got a bit of a stumper and can't seem to find the appropriate answers *anywhere* online. This may be more of a Mac oriented question, so I'll probably go find a mac forum to crosspost this as well, but any information would be greatly appreciated.

The problem is this: I've set up a 389-ds server correctly and have got basic, non-encrypted user authentication working on Linux boxes, and from our intranet site. However, I can't get any of our Macs (Snow Leopard) to authenticate.

The Macs can use the server through Address Book, and any other LDAP enabled application, so they're definitely communicating. Do I need extra "Mac-specific" attributes for each user or something?

Thanks for any help!

OK, so after opening and closing te "Directory Utility" on the macs several times and a couple of reboots (with no changes, mind you) this problem eventually righted itself. No idea what the actual solution was, but it works fine now...
