Snow Leopard, Small Business Server 08, and Existing User Profiles
Posted on 2010-11-27
I am trying to join a few Snow Leopard systems to my SBS 2008 Domain. I am able to bind to Active Directory, and most things seem to be working. I have a somewhat serious problem though:
The Mac's have been in use for sometime so the users have their own profiles already configured. When I join to AD and then log on with my domain user name and password it creates a new local profile for that user, just as with Windows. In Windows I would just rename the profile directory or use a tool like Profwiz to do the trick. Anyone know how I could do it here?
I tried the same trick (rename the user's home directory on the Mac) followed by some chmod/chown attempts but no joy.
