The issue I'm having with Snow Leopard is that I can bind accounts to AD and on the first boot it works perfectly. It shows Network Accounts Available and I can login using an AD account. After I reboot and on every boot after the first it then shows Network Accounts Unavailable. I logged in as local admin and it shows it is bound to the domain and it has a green light under the Directory Utility for the domain.

Here are the main bits of info regarding this problem:

1. Computer is bound to domain on first boot using Deploy Studio's firstboot script. This works brilliantly on 10.5 and only became a problem on 10.6.

2. On first boot, it binds to the domain correctly and shows Network Accounts Available. I can log in using a network account and everything is peachy.

3. If I reboot the machine, the status on the loginbox changes to Network Accounts Unavailable and has a red light.

4. If I've logged in to an AD account on first boot, it will log in even with the red light present (it is a mobile account). This is working properly.

5. If I try to log in using an account that has never logged in before, it will not log it in.

6. If I login in as local admin and check the Directory Utility, it shows the machine as being properly bound to the domain and has a green light even thought the login box shows a red one.

These are all the facts surrounding this issue that I have at the moment. I am booting up a 10.5 image right now that is freshly imaged and will report back its behavior using the same AD binding script that is being used on the 10.6 image.
