iMovie and Adobe Premiere on Macs with Domain Users Only

School environment.

Lab with 15 iMacs. They are all joined to a Mac OSX domain server. All students have their own network accounts and 25GB of space each on the server. The only local account on each iMac is an administrator account.

iMovie will not operate properly. Users can not import images, clips etc. to movies or save files without errors.

Adobe Premiere will not operate at all. It will start, offer options to start new project, name, location etc. and then freeze. I understand Premiere is not built to allow operation in such a networked environment, but I can't be the first person to overcome this issue.

Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks!

The solution was to run these via local accounts. Nothing I did got them to work via networked accounts. Closing question.

Are the iMacs wired into the network or are you running them over a Wireless connection?

Wired via gigabit switch, absolutely. Network accounts wouldn't work well via wifi.

Try redirecting ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/ to /Users/Shared/%@/Library/Application Support/Adobe
and ~/Library/Caches to /tmp/%@/Library/Caches through WGM.



Here is link to the basics of redirecting with WGM.
