Workgroup Manager Not Applying Preferences
New to the site but its helped me vastly over the past week or two! I hope someone will be able to help with my latest issue no amount of googling has been able to resolve this yet!
We have a mac server running OD, I have 10 Imacs (snow leopard) connected to said OD Master Server (snow leopard) and users are able to login with their network accounts.
Looking on the client imacs they are sucessfully connected to the server, Ive added the computers in WGM using the Ethernet ID and IP address and have a group called Mac Suite.
I must be missing something fundemental as no matter what I try I can not get WGM to enforce any preferences onto the workstations or users, this previously worked before rebuilding the server. I have reimaged all the workstations.
I wondered if it could be a DNS releated issue as in ARD3 the DNS names are incorrect, I can connect to machines fine and users can connect to all network resources (shared areas, home directories on both mac and windows boxes)
Here is a list of trouble shoooting steps I have taken thus far...none have worked;
Disabled DNS on the OD server and used our internal windows DNS as the server address
Refreshed the cache on all clients
Tried using DHCP over a manually address, rebooted refreshed IP
Any ideas on where to go, ideally Id like to WGM applying preferences otherwise Im screwed come first week back!!!!!!!!]
Thanks in advance for any input
Oh how frustrating this is...
This is a bit of a necro thread, but i really thought i must impart what i have learnt about this in case any others are having the same problem and need an answer that works.
What I found was that in the Computers list (not Computer Groups), is that I could see computers in there that had old computer names (from when i initially imaged and bound to the OD).
If you have renamed your machines this could be your problem.
Delete the machines out of the Computer group, delete any OLD machine names out of Computers List, put the machines back into the Computers Group. Ta Da, now working right as rain, right?
