    This has raised some good questions in my brain.

    Our macs are AD bound and OD Bound (apples version) and that works differently ( not by much)

    just tried my laptop just being bound to the AD but not the OD and with the "use unc path......." and it mounted as a folder down on the right hand side of the dock

    one thing id suggest checking is the format of your unc of the home direcotry in AD users and computers

    what format do you have it in

    apple suggest having it as a full address ie

    \\server.apple.com\users\jmay

    give this a try

    Yeah when I had this problem under each user in AD I had to ensure that the path to there home directory was similiar ( In our case the users directory was a hidden share ) so

    \\Server\$Users\%username%

    where %username% is literally the AD user name / account name ( Joe Bloggs generally ( depending on your naming convention ) would become JBloggs

    were using DFS paths

    mine for example is

    \\tamarside.local\network\staff\CartwrightK

    are you saying i need to point it directly to the server where its stored?

    Not sure if DFS works or not - if you try it direct to the server and see if that makes any difference for one account ?

    DFS from what i remember certainly didnt work on the older versions of osx and nothing i can find on the net points to this being changed

    yes sorry, that was my poor attempt at making it an example

    If you go futher into macs in the future with a mac server integration, having it as a .local domain might cause hiccups but shouldnt cause any problems at this time

    \\dell3\i$\Staff$\CARTWRIGHTK

    To

    \\<IP ADDRESS OF dell3>\Staff$\CARTWRIGHTK
