I have PHD setup and working. Everything works fine except for two (unimportant) files which are giving me Posix 102 errors. This wouldn't really be a problem if it wasn't for the fact that I have to acknowledge these errors via two dialog boxes before the machines log out. Since the whole sync takes about 5 minutes it's like watching paint dry before you can finally leave the office.

Is there a way to turn of the error reporting dialogs during sync so that it just finishes and the machine logs out?

    Its in WorkGroup Manager > select user, group with mobilehomes or whatever you wish to add this adjustment to > Preferences > Details > Double click Home Sync > Turn down the "Always" tab > You should see all of the sync settings you currently have. > Make sure the "Always" line is highlited and press "new key" at the top > a new line now reads New Item > Click on New Item and you will see a variety of options not in the GUI.

    You may want "Suppress logout preference sync errors" or "Suppress logout non-preference sync errors" which do what they say or "logout dialog timeout" which can be set to a number of seconds to display the errors before dismissing them automatically. Or you may wish to add all three. Whichever you choose make sure to edit the "value" field to the right. There are some instructions which appear at the bottom of the window to help clarify what the options are. In any case, if you suppress or do a dialog timeout you will be able to select shut down and walk away without concern.

    Just thought of this, if you don't have the Details > Home Sync option mentioned above:
    Go to WorkgroupManager > Group > Preferences > Details > hit the + and navigate to System/Library/CoreServices/ManagedClient. You should now have the Home Sync item along with several other additional controllable features.

    Thanks Erich for your helpful reply! Some really cool keys in there to fiddle with. Thanks again!

    +A small note for other users+: if you don't see a pop-up list of available key values when you run Workgroup Manager remotely, try running WM directly on your server.

    +Other references+: Additional information to Erich's great tip can be found on page 236 in Apple's User Management manual for v10.5.
