    problem mounting shares on an HP W2k3R2 Storage Server

    DRAFTING TO BE UPDATED

    Pulling my hair out over this one.

    10.4.10 Joined to Active Directory domain
    Home directory set to automount.
    Works if home directory is on a W2Ksp4 server (on of our DCs)
    Does not work if home directory is on HP Storage Server (W2KR2sp1)

    Errors we see are a grey/translucent ? in the dock where the home folder should be.
    Trying to connect from Finder (Go->Connect to Server) give the following error:

    The Finder cannot complete the operation because some of the data in "smb://server1" could not be read or written. (Error code -36).

    In the console window the following errors are reported:


    However if the Mac has been logged on for some time (seems likely this is 10+hrs) then the console log reports:
    mount_smbfs: Ticket expired krb5_get_credentials

    and the UI asks me for my username and password - at which point I can access the shares.

    Where in AD is the Storage server? Is it in server with inheritance? We had this on a pure windows domain.

    You need to make sure each folder before the students homefolder is read only to each student. If the users are not getting a home folder then they will get a default user account without anyd permissions because it cannot write the library preference files.

    Also make sure the time is in sync had that problem aswell.
