Currently Being ModeratedJan 7, 2011 2:24 PM (in response to packetman)I found this in the secure.log file:
Jan 6 19:10:02 MacBook301E loginwindow: lwMountWithArrayOfPaths: failed to mount prefPath=smb://fs01/users$,error=13
I think this is what's causing it to not login. It's trying to mount the users home directory but it can't.MacPro.13" MacBookPro, 13" MacBook, MacBookAir, MacMini, Xserve, iPhone, iPad, Mac OS X (10.6.6), FreeBSD, Fedora, Ubuntu...Windows 7 if I have to
Currently Being ModeratedMar 2, 2011 8:38 AM (in response to packetman)This is caused by the machine "remembering" the path to the last user's share so when another user logs in, it is using the wrong path for that user, so it fails with that incredibly useful "unknown error has occurred" message!
To fix this, open the auto_master file in the /etc folder.
rem out the "network/servers" line so the file looks like this :-
# Automounter master map
+auto_master # Use directory service
/net -hosts -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid
/home auto_home -nobrowse,hidefromfinder
# /Network/Servers -fstab
