    Hi all. I have just started setting up Lion Server for my household however have a slight issue with allowing network users to logon to devices. If I allow usernames and passwords to be typed in manually then network users can login, however if I want to have them show up as users on the login screen it doesn't work.

    Is there a way for network users to be visible on the login screen at all times please? There are only two network users in my house.

    I wouldn't think there is a way, as you would usually have hundreds of users in a server environment, imagine listing ALL of those people on a login screen :O it is also more secure getting people to login with their usernames too.

    Does that solution make "network user" a choice or does it list every single network user? The latter isn't really an option in a network with 3,000 users if that's what it does

    Luckily I only have two network users so it is ok for me, but yes it does display all users. :)

    Thanks for this! That was a timely post which was something annoying me as well.
