I sucessfully bind my 10.8.3 mac to our AD domain. The green light is on when veiwing the binding in users and groups.


However, when I boot the computer, there is a 60-90 second delay when the red warning "network accounts are unavailable" displays. This goes away after said 60-90 seconds and I can then log in with my AD account.


I have tried rebinding. I have tried unchecking "Allow authentication from any domain in the forest"


I have read suggestions on Create moble accounts, but this is a patch work and we'd rather not enable this on desktop machines if we shouldnt have to.


Can anyone help me figure this out?


Thank you,



OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
