Catalina and Mobile Accounts.

New Contributor II

Hi All,

We still Bind our machines to AD and create user accounts as mobile accounts.

In previous version of MacOs, I use to be able to use the command, createmobileaccount, and that'll cache passwords from our AD server so that can we send computers out to users without needing them to sign in locally on our network. However, with Catalina, it looks like accounts made through the "createmobileaccount" command don't accept our passwords unless we sign in for the first time on the network that our AD is on.

Has anyone encountered this issue? Is there something I can do to cache passwords for mobile accounts in Catalina? Since everyone is WFH right now, we need to deploy a bunch new computers to our user's homes.
