Howdy,

I have a situtation in which a user logs into a mac which is bound both to AD and OD in a magic triangle setup. Can their home folder be located on the lion server, without editing the user profile info in AD Users and Groups.

I'm wondering if I can set a managed preference either from a .plist file or something else in Workgroup manager for the home folders to be created on the Lion Server.

 

The problem is the students can login to a mac or windows pc, and we don't want them having network profiles when logging into Windows. Those are just temporary local profiles at the moment and get deleted at logout.

 

Hopefuly that makes sense.

 

Thanks,

Braden

    That worked great!!!! Thnx for the reply.

     

    I have another question for you, now that you have the network folders created, how do you prevent users from going to other users network forlders and modifying them?

     

    Thank you again!

    The users network folders are 'owned' by the respective users and the standard permissions do not allow other users - even an administrator to access them. (The root/superuser account can of course access anything.)
