Inconsistent startup times to get to "Network Account Available"
We are trying to implement a mac mini server to control desktop, docking, preferences etc.
Seems to be working fine however, oftenly the MACs take up to 10 minutes to turn the login box status icon from red to orange to green on startup.
only when it's green can a student login and authenticate with AD
Really confused as to why they are doing this.
They have a 1gb lan connection to both mac and 2008 r2 servers
In DNS Manager i have 2 entries for each of my 4 x domain controllers, one A record points to it's static ip address for the network(10.*.*.*), the other points towards its local ip for the SAN unit setup we have (192.*.*.*) - could this be the problem? I have ordered the the name server record to put the 10.*.*.* IP first in it's list but it keeps defaulting back to the 192 san unit address to be first in it's list. Could this be the problem or am i chasing a rabbit hole to nowhere??
