10.5.5 bound to Active Directory issue
I've successfully bound my macs & server to our AD but we've got a slight issue.
When a user tries to login they get past the Login window but their home area isn't mounted. It's as if it freezes.
The AD plugin is set to use the unc path and to mount using smb.
The home areas are stored on a Windows Server.
Anyone had any similar problems?

I remember experiments with trying to do this at one school I was at. If I remember correctly it ended up that a script had to be used.

From what I remember though we never actually got it working. Hope you have better luck.

Seems like when I have any difficult issue with AD, Xgrid, Podcast Producer, it frequently turns out to be DNS-related.
