Hi everyone, Basically long story short, we have a couple of hundred machines on our network running 10.6.8 all happily working away on a server. We created a couple of new 10.7 images earlier in 2011 which was unusable due to the AD binding and connecting to samba shares. However, now this is all working pretty good I managed to login using my AD account, but for some reason my network homes share now sits in my dock (next to applications), a standard Managed account is created locally and im really not sure why? I'm just very confused as to why this has happened and hoping someone can shed some light onto this for me? If I log into 10.6.8 OS, I have my network share homes automatically loadup on startup for example, the storage/network file structure replicates the desktop but if I login to 10.7.3 with my AD account, it creates a brand new local managed account and mounts the network home share in the dock. The only difference I can think of (the guy who set this up has left!) is that we are not using AD with 10.6.8. If anyone can give any indication what settings I should be looking for I would be grateful! Thanks.
