I've unticked the force home directory button and now I get the home drive and the sync has stopped which a nice. But I'm still stuck with these clients dropping from AD -"This domain is not responding" everytime I re-add the Active Directory and then reboot it will drop off...
I have done a work around on this issue. I have hidden the User folder from the hard drive, only way to access it is by Go to folder or by terminal. Im locking the system down for students, and to staff to a certain extent. Ive kept the force home directory, but made a script to mount the students/staff home drive onto the desktop which is on another post on this forum. So far its working nicely.
Do you have a Mac Server in place or is it just AD? And does your domain end in .local at all?
yea we have a mac server in place and our domain name is xxx.local.
I have come across a few posts online saying that the macs have problems with talking to xxx.local domains but I cant remember what the answer is to it. Have a look on google with something along the lines of 'mac AD .local problems'. Here is a link for you to start off with though - Clicky
