comment Possible to close port 80 and still use port 443?
It's worth noting that in most cases you'll still need the HTTP->HTTPS redirect since it's not allowed to send the HSTS header over an HTTP (non-secured) connection. However, a conforming browser will never make a second plain HTTP request. Also, IE (as of version 10) and Safari (as of version 6) don't support HSTS, so if you don't want to shut port 80 down altogether, you're still stuck with the redirect.

What finally worked was specifying a preferred domain controller. I'm not sure whether this points to a compatibility issue with Lion and AD or to a potential problem with our domain--but I'll investigate that. I'm awarding the bounty on this answer because you definitely pointed me in the right direction.

I have made this change, unbound, rebound, and rebooted. Alas, it still accepts my old domain (user) password and not the new one.

It's been bound for about a year and a half, and was running Leopard at the time. Password changes were picked up as expected until just last week; I assume Lion is the culprit as the system has changed very little otherwise. In any case, the password in question is a user password, not a computer password (which, as I understand it, secures the communication channel with the DC).

Two DCs on a single, fairly small domain. AD replication is usually near-instantaneous. In any case, it had been 24 hours since the password change when I initially posted this question; now it's closer to 48 and the problem persists.

comment sshd not writing any kind of log Debian 6
I haven't gone through the installation recently, but I'd expect any default configuration to include rsyslogd. Unless it's really bare-bones, I'd just install things as you need them. Pretty soon you'll find it's all there.
