Hello,

 

we are migrated our environment to Mountain Lion Server and Netboot Clients also with Mountain Lion. User profiles are located on the Server.

 

If Users change some profile settings like default browser or standart application for opening files, these settings are persistent until the user reboot the machine. After that, all settings reverted to default. User permissions looks like it should. Also if some settings would be changed inside Safari proberties like search machine or startup page, these settings will be stay after the reboot. :-( Some other not.

 

Any sugestions where i have to look?

 

Thanks and regards.

 

 

Joris

    Are you referring to Network Home Directories, or NetBoot clients?

     

    The scenario you are describing sounds like NetBoot. User changes persist for the life of the NetBoot session, and are reset on every reboot. That's exactly how NetBoot is supposed to work.

     

    If you are talking about Network Home Directories, those changes should be persistent across multiple login sessions.

    Hey Brian,

     

    we use Netboot ... yes but every User which is log in to the netboot client get an own Network Home Directory mapped.

     

    I know that changes on the OS not stay persistant inside the Netboot OS. But changes on the UserProfiles, like default Browser or somthing else, are also reseted after the reboot. I think they should saved in the UserProfiles and stay persistant if the user log in again after the reboot?

     

    Regards

    I have no experience with a setup quite like the one you describe, but that sounds like a bug to me.
