I have a 10.5.8 server, with a mix of 10.4 & 10.5 clients bound to it.
Every 10.5 client receives the correct login list, with all network users.
Every 10.4 client only shows Admin, Local & Other - or if you wait about 15-20 minutes might get all network users in the login list.

As soon as the login screen shows up, network users are able to click Other and login, however the priority is to get the network users to show up in the list. Its much easier for young kids to find their name and we need to have both images consistent.

I have tried a fresh re-image, put the machines into different groups in WGM - and the computers are successfully getting the managed settings.

I am in the process of removing the bind, deleting plists and cold booting, using safe mode to clear caches etc before rebinding but I don't think its worked in the past.

    Hi Caledai, how many users are you talking about? Do you need all network users displayed or just the younger ones? I have seen setups where they achieve this task by having non-synching mobile accounts for the class. i.e. 2 classes per year level from 1-4 (8 users) displayed on the login window.
    Is this an option?
