Mac on Windows Domain freezing due to home drive
Hi fellow members,
We have a windows domain running server 2008 r2 with windows 7 client pc's.
All was well till we introduced IMACS.
1. After binding the imacs to the windows domain the first problem faced was "the domain isnt responding" since our FQDN ended with a .local.
Ended up fixing this, which fixed the login issues.
Everything was alright, till this other issue occurred
2. Now for some bizzare reason when a domain user logs on, and starts an application i.e. Safari or Microsoft word or powerpoint 2011, everything freezes with a spinning wheel.
This only happens when the UNC path box is ticked (with SMB) so that the users home drive gets mapped/mounted
When I untick the UNC path option and select force local home directory, everything works fine.
I thought it could be a NTFS permission problem, but then everything works fine when logging in from a Windows PC.
Any ideas or tips to get around this will be highly appreciated
