Local Profiles on a Mac

Hi All,

Just managed to get our Mac to authenticate though our Domain Controller and AD, but need to ask about local profiles.

Now when a user logs into their account - everything comes though including their home drive - but whenever they save something to the desktop and logoff - it's not there when they log back in.

Is there a way to enable local profiles on a Mac? A bit like the way Windows uses local profiles on a machine?

Many Thanks,

Pete

I think you want the details at <http://weblog.bignerdranch.com/?p=6&page=3> - try the options for mobile accounts and local home directories.

Thanks dalesit - The link looks like it just tells me about domaining the machine.

I'm looking for the machine to save what i've done on the desktop for when I next login. At the moment - it forgets what was there when I last logged off.

The particular options are in the section under

3. Under Advanced Options, User Experience, set home location to use SMB

where if you look at the screenshot, you will see the sections on setting up mobile accounts, and forcing the home directory to be on the local machine.

Cheers,
