    Had to go back to 10.5 in the end and it all works flawlessly.
    how have you got it working on 10.5? do you use an x serve?

    I solved this in 10.6 by adding this line to my /etc/hosts file

    IPOFSERVER server.DOMAIN.LOCAL server

    seems to have fixed all the issues i was having

    Same way as I tried to on 10.6!

    Just bound all clients to the AD domain. I do use an xserve, so they are bound to that too, but only really for managed prefs (and storage)

    Hi Sidewinder

    When your users log in to your macs they authenticate against AD

    Do your macs also Mapp ( sorrry ) Mount their Windows home directory?



    Thanks

    They dont, instead they mount a user folder on the mac server, thats just a decision we took because we didnt have enough space on our windows file server for the kids to be saving huge photoshops and cubase projects. So they have a home folder on both servers.

    Most people though will just map the windows home drive, and it does work fine
