Hi all, I'm setting up a 10.6 server and I need a little direction. I've worked with NDS/eDirectory and MS Active Directory, but this is my first venture into Apple Open Directory territory. Anyway, my concern is with home folders (to OD users). If I choose "none" in workgroup manager, I can't seem to login from a workstation (in my case, several brand new iMacs running 10.6.4). If I add a home folder (afp://my.server.com/Users), user accounts can login, but then the home folders naturally operate off of the OD server (there will only be one server in this setup, and it's a OD master). I'm worried about disk space (Apple Mail, stuff users may store on the desktop, etc) and network bandwidth if the home folders reside on the network. So I suppose my questions are as thus: 1) Do OD users have to have a home folder on the network? 2) If no, why can't the users login without one? 3) Is it generally advisable to have a home folder on the network or not? Thanks is given advance... help is greatly appreciated!!
