10.7 mobile homes odd behaviour

Valued Contributor

We are trying to use the AD plugin to do the mobile home folder for OS X 10.7 and encountered a very annoying issue.

Our test clients (OS X 10.7) are bound to AD and "Create mobile account at login" is selected on the plugin. But sometimes when a AD user logs in, it will log into Network account instead of Mobile account. Mostly the first login.

Has anyone ever come across any issue like this before?

how are you configuring the AD plugin? I've run into this when the plugin is configured via the GUI rather than via a jamf directory binding or standard bash script.

I've seen similar behavior when there were duplicate user names elsewhere in the AD forest.
