Hi! We are using a setup of a 10.7.1 OS X Server and lots of 10.7.1 OS X Clients.

 

Today one of my users called me that he is not able to login anymore. I checked, and when he wants to login the sync is working, then the screen flashes to grey for a short time and throws us back into the login window.

 

I thought it might be an error with the syncing and tried removing the ~./FileSync and ~/Library/FileSync folders on both the client and the server, but this didn't have any effect. The user can access the other services we're running (iChat, AddressBook, Calendar, Wiki).

 

All of my other users can login without problems at all.

 

I'd appreciate it very much if someone could tell me how to resolve this or give some hints.

 

Thank you very much in advance,

    Have you checked the logs on the Client with a local admin user?

    Found the answer I was not looking for, however I am glad I found the fix. Unfortunately backing up a users data wiping it on server/client machine putting it back updating to 10.7.5 was the fix, leaving them at 10.7.4 never fixed it. 10.7.5 did have server support software put in the updates info. Of what it exactly does who knows, apple didn't put any information on that.

    If anybody has any other way of doing this or a quicker fix without having to wipe server/client information would be good to know. I have tried: Machelp mate (sometimes it helped, rarely). Any other information would be helpful. Thanks for the related posts
