Question about setting up default docks for network users.

New Contributor

I have a default dock that I created in composer and have applied it to all local accounts.
I wish to do the same for all network accounts, but I'm not really sure how to go about doing so.

If you can offer any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

This is a guess and I very well may be incorrect, but the server where the accounts are stored has an identical hierarchy to a local computer, so would it be possible to run a policy targeting that server? An example would be "Filling existing user directories with a default dock."

The FEU policy option doesn't work with network users (even if their home folders are stored locally).

Have you tried creating a policy and using the JSS Dock Items option to manage the Dock?

Hi Alex and thank you for your reply.
To answer your question, yes I have tried that, without much luck. I can and should try that out again. I will make an attempt and notify you of the outcome.
