depends is you using 10.5 or 10.6?
10.5: go to applications, then utilities then select directory utility
Next click on the services tab and then click on active directory plug in, then the little pencil to edit it.
show the advanced options and under the user experience tab you should have all the stuff like create mobile account at login, use unc from active directory........
10.6 is kinda the same but to get to the directory plug in go to system prefs, then accounts, then login options and where it says network account server, click edit and then click on open directory utility.
thanks, on my mac which is the one i am using to do all the WGM create mobile account is not selceted although the three others are(force local, use unc, default user shell) do i need to check every mac to see if its unchecked?
believe this is possible by using apple remote desktop if you have it. If you don't have it i recommend getting it, very useful tool.
The force local homes is more the one you want to have unticked ( I forgot about that one)
that is correct.
all i have ticked is the unc one, and then what id does is creates the home directory on the active directory speicifed home directory, which is great but can be slow and can be a pain if this is set up as my documents folder etc
