We're using an all apple OD infrastracture with 10.7.4 and Xsan 2.3 and for the past year or so have been expiriencing this fetching issue ever since 10.6.

Not a while ago we've came across Apple's offical article on how-to fix hexadecimal group ID's such as FFFFEEEE-DDDD-CCCC-BBBB-AAAA82000400 from


After reading Apple's article we've found out that the problem occures whenever a user logs into the machine BEFORE OD communications is completed.

To get things to work, we usually unmount the Xsan volume and then re-mount whenever the user is ALREADY logged in. This has worked for us for a couple of months till we came across a new problem; After re-mounting we're able to see the right permissions on TERMINAL but on FINDER it's still fetching.


Finder vs. Terminal:

I've tried re-launching Finder without getting lucky, it seems like every time I re-launch Finder a different network group appears as "Fe     tching..."

Mac OS X (10.7.5)
