Macs with AD integration - home folder error
I've recently bought a Mac mini server and have been playing around with AD/OD integration.
I've got my macs bound to AD and OD, and I've set the AD binding to map the user's home folder based on the entry in AD.
I've got three issues that I'd quite like help with...
The home directory mapping seems to be working absolutely fine for staff (the home folder connects without a problem) - but it doesn't work for pupils at all - I always get a message:
"The home folder for user "bananas" is not located in the usual place or cannot be accessed.
The home or users folder may have been moved or deleted. If the home folder is locatedon the network, the server may be unavailable temporarily."
Any ideas? The user can connect to the folder absolutely fine by using "Go --> Connect to Server" which is odd.
Issue number 2:
If I sucessfully login using an AD account, then logout and try and login again using a different AD account I get a message "You are unable to log in to the user account "bananas" at this time" (Logging in to the account failed because an error occurred).
What's going on there?!
Issue number 3:
When the system boots up it takes it a brief moment to show the "Other..." user logon option. Then if I choose that to logon using an AD account it takes a few attempts (or a minute of waiting or so) before the user will authenticate properly.
Having been initially skeptical about having Mac integration there was a brief moment when I got excited about the prospect when I got it working nicely on my macbook. Now that I've discovered these other little quirks I'm now back to being a bit skeptical.
I'd be really grateful for any pointers.
