I dont typically support macs, but I have a client with an odd issue that I can not solve.
He has a Macbook Pro with OSX 10.6.
He logs in using his network account, authenticating against an OSX 10.5 server.
When he tries to to login, it appears as if he has a bad password.
His account is able to login just fine on other Macbooks in the company. (So I'm assuming his network account and password are fine)
Other users are able to log into HIS Macbook just fine, inclusing new accounts that have never before logged into this Macbook. (So I assume his macbook is communicating just fine with the OSX server)
When I go into the accounts list in the Macbook, his account is not there. It's missing.
If I try to create an account with his name, I'm told the account already exists.
We ran diskutility to repair the permissions on the drive, but this did not fix the issue.
On the windows support side I would simply rebuild the users profile.. I'm not sure what the equivilent is on the mac side.
