We have a mixed estate of Apple and Microsoft Devices in our Secondary School. Our Staff MAcbooks were working when we Bound the Macs to the Active Directory Domain and enabled Mobile Accounts. We receive the mobile account at the Welcome screen on and off the network.
All of a sudden this has stopped working. Our users only get the mobile account as an option when they login to a home account (in the background Wifi connection is established) then they log out and they see the mobile account.
This is very frustrating to have to do this every time. Apple have released an OS X 10.8.4 update which improves performance of network connection, mobile accounts and Active Directory connection but we still have this as an issue.
Another user has the same issue here
If anyone knows how to force wifi connections at login this would be the first step and a possible solution. I would have thought that a mobile account would work completely offline regardless of wifi connection though.
As always any help is much appreciated
