I have decided to put the Mac's that we have onto the network as apposed to being stand alone mainly for the purpose of file storage. At the moment student save to the local machine which is not a great solution. So here is the first problem I have encountered.
I have Binded the Mac to Active Directory and I can log on with domain accounts, but I am having problems with mapping home folders and network drives. Is there any info on how to set this up
My File server home folder shares are \\server\homes$\Staff and \\server\homes$\Students the Mac is mounting a folder on the Desktop Homes$ and I can see folders inside but this is not what I want.
My perfect solution would be a mirror of the windows shares, User Home folder, Public share, and any other required network shares. Is this even possible?
After that is sorted I would like to be able to manage them centrally I have a OSX server on version 10.5.8, I would welcome some advice here to as this is my first adventure with Macs
Am on 10.7 but hopefully the directory utility is pretty similar. I have it working (most of the time) like you're trying. On the local machine make sure "Force local home directory on startup disk" is unticked Screen_Shot_2013-05-01_at_13.23.41.png
