One of my clients (a hotel) is ready to replace their three-year-old HP computers, and I have convinced them to adopt iMacs as their replacements. Some people will be running Mac OS X for most tasks with a VMware virtual machine running Windows XP for their very Windows-centric hotel management software, and others (the less computer-savvy ones) will simply be using Boot Camp to run straight Windows XP. So far, only two iMacs have been put in place (just to test them out before making the switch). One is running Mac OS X and the other is running Windows XP via Boot Camp. I have bound the Mac OS X iMac to our Windows domain using Directory Utility. I was initially quite impressed with how well Mac OS X was able to integrate into a Windows environment. In particular, the ability to mount the user's existing home directory as their Mac OS X home directory was excellent. However now I'm running into a problem. Every time the computer is restarted, the machine permanently loses its connection to the domain. After the initial binding, the Directory Utility light was green and it told me the computer had connected to the server as expected. However, after restarting, the light turns red and Directory Utility tells me that the server is not responding and no domain users can login. Nothing fixes it except for a rather disruptive and time-consuming unbinding and rebinding to the domain. Obviously "don't restart the computer" will only work for so long, and already the user has restarted their computer once "out of habit" (which hopefully we will be able to break, lol), but still, I'm looking for a good way to fix this problem permanently. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
