When I try to sync my Mac Account to my server it says: "The sync could not complete because your network home at “/Volumes/Server HD/NetHomes3/Users/Simcoxrl” does not allow writing."

Need more info? E-Mail Me at: Robert@CTCSocial.com

It's probably a permissions problem with your share point.

I had a nightmare with SL Server which produced the same error.

You can clear all the permissions on the command line or use BatCHMOD (a handy little app). Once you've done that then go though and set the correct permissions to the user folders - it should then work fine.

Can you give more info as to what you are connecting to? AD, OD, Centrify, etc. That error message is telling you what the issue is. It can't find the home folder path and thus it cannot write anything.

If you have created a custom home folder and published it using "Make available for home directories...", check in the permission list for the file share.

The owner of your custom folder should be a user with full permissions to the folder. If the owner is unknown, change it to a valid user.

"your network home at “(null)” "
Means that the home path for that user is not set properly in either OD or AD.
Something like afp://server/Users.

Hi

In ML server:
1- In File Sharing, I've add a Folder "Zusers" and activated "make available for home directories over AFP"
2- I added a new user "Joanna" and set her home folder to "Zusers"
3- After pushing "Done" button, /Zusers/joanna Created automatically including Joanna home subfolders like Desktop, Documents, Downloads, ....
4- In work Group manager, I've activated "Mobility" for Joanna
5- I double checked joanna home folder in Work group manager > Accounts > home and it is : "afp://my server.com/Zusers"

6- In client machine I've logged in with Joanna network Account, new Mobile user created and I saw "server Greeting Message" as well

Here is the problem:
Now I Believe when I copy files to the joanna desktop it should be in /Zusers/joanna/desktop as well, but there is nothing.

So do I missing sth or where is her network home folder?

Thank you for your help
