Automatic login for network-managed OS X?
I'll try to keep this concise...
I have a 10.3.9 client and a 10.4.11 server. The server uses Open Directory for accounts, clients can login and network management works properly.
My issue is - I would like the client to automatically login to a network managed account created specifically for that computer. The only ways to auto login (that I've found) deal with local accounts.
I was thinking there might be a trick with Netinfo or something along those lines... Any ideas?

I'm certainly not aware of any way that you can, and would assume it would not be allowed, as it's a major potential security hole in your network.

I know this is possible in 10.4, not sure about 10.3. I have about 30 computers in a lab that all share one account on an OD master to easily set all the preferences for the whole lab. (yeah, I know that's not the best way to do it, but it works)
I think the way that I got them to auto login was to log into the network account, open system preferences and go to the accounts pane. The network account should show up as a choice for auto login. Select it and put in your password as you would with a local one.
