we do not have a .local domain, and the problem isnt with log in time. its a delay at the login screen where net works accounts are unavailbel for a time. after a wiat they become available and I can then log in, and the login is fast.
I have updated to 10.8.4 and the problem persists.

Don't know if this will help or not, but my network admin says you should turn OFF fast user switching in the Users & Groups window to speed up the network login process. Let us know if that works! Sounds too simple!

I have not. We have learned to live with it.
drob's idea didnt pan out for us. We already had fast user switching turned off.
Since posting this we have a number more macs ugraded to 10.8. They all experience this issue, however not all of them have such a long delay. Most users report having to wait about 30 seconds. Some report that is is as little as 10 seconds. Some still report the 60-90 seconds.
Like i said, we are living with it until we can find an answer.
Thank you all.

yes, exactly the problem. only in our case, the red dot and error message goes away after a period of time.
For macbooks, we've created mobile accounts, so users can log in regardless of the message. (as long as they previously logged into the mac with thier domain account).

Are you plugged in to the network (via wired Ethernet)?
If not, then it's likely you're not connected to the wireless network when you're not logged in. If you want to log onto the network wirelessly you have to create an 802.1X profile and deploy it to the Macs. You'd likely need to do this via Profile Manager, as logging onto the network via the WiFi icon in the menu bar will not automatically log the machine onto a corporate wireless network when the user is not logged in.

This problem is with all wired macs, mini's and mac pro's, running 10.8.4 bound to AD.
The problem does exist for the wireless macbooks, but its less of an issue as we are using mobile accounts.

We have problems with this as well. Our problem with 10.8.5 is that we like our AD users to be admins.
We already use mobile accounts on all our iMacs using 10.6.8. and now with 10.8.5.
The problem for us is when a user logs in too quickly to their computer they won't be admins.
If they wait for the red/orange to disappear all work well.

I have run into various versions of this same issue. I have had this problem starting with Lion and now even on 10.8.5. Sometimes when the user logs in the admin doesn't get added to thier account. Sometimes it won't create the mobile profile or even ask when it's the first time and then just boots in with the issues inherent with not having an actual home folder.
Our biggest issue has been password caching. It seems to cache the password and fails to check the domain for a new password. I haven't been able to find a way to clear that cache and force it to try new. I suspect that even forcing it to try new it will fail for some reason. It looks like it isn't even able to reach the domain controller for some reason. And I haven't been able to find a relevant failure in the logs.
