We are in the process of trying to get new iMac mini's w/ 11.4 to bind with an Active Directory without success. The procedure appears to get into a loop when trying to change a local directory. It does sometimes recognize the AD and the posted computer name in the AD intermittently.
Has anyone have any current information. It apparently originated with the 11 beta's.
Are you able to bind with any other version of Big Sur or an earlier OS
Are you doing the bind manually or with Jamf?
I have been binding many different version of Mac OS both manually and with Jamf just fine. That includes 11.4 on M1 or Intel.
If you do it automatically try and do it manually as @dmichels outlined to make sure everything is ok. on the AD side
