I've got a MacBook Pro PPC that is bound to AD in a Windows 2003 domain -- unfortunately, a recent update seems to have broken the bind. The user continued to "log in" to the domain using cached credentials and access the local home directory of her network user account. Since she still received an IP and had internet access, it wasn't noticed that she couldn't access domain resources right away.
My question -- if I unbind and rebind the Macintosh from AD, will their be any affect on the locally stored network user files? Or, is it possible to reset/sync the machine account? Rebinding seems the simplest solution, but I don't want to risk the user's locally stored preferences and files. To complicate matters, MacAdmit is installed, so it created an alternate directory for the domain. MacAdmit's configuration tool in Direcdtory Access did allow me to verify that the machine account password is what's causing the problem. Assuming it sees the domain as the same domain (which it should), will this overwrite or erase files already stored locally>
