MAC permissions to Microsoft AD

I have a windows 2012 R2 AD environment.  I also have about 10 MACs that seem to always have issues with permissions.

I have attached screenshot, where it shows the fetching...   Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Usually, if the MACs are restarted 4 or 5 times, then it might go away, that's actually the only way to make it go away.

Is you Mac joined to the domain?

I use the free version of centrify to join my macs, works great.
DanNetwork EngineerAuthor Commented:
yes, it's joined to the domain.

What does centrify do?  Is this the website?  https://www.centrify.com/

The problem is not joining it to the domain, that works, it's after that where I have problems.
Just constantly, the MAC is fetching permissions, and if the permissions don't work, most of the software on the MAC does not work that is tied to permissions.

How is centrify going to help my macs stay connected to my AD?  it looks like a cloud service.

This is an old issue with OS X for local and network permissions.  SOme have said a re-install resolves this issue.  Take a read through this thread and see if it helps you.

Centrify won't resolve this issue and I was just curious to know if your Macs were joined to a domain .

You can use centrify to join macs to the domain instead of joining directly in OS X. While this isn't a direct guaranteed fix for the file permissions problem, it has solved file problems for me in the past so much that I default to joining macs to ad this way.

Also, if you have osx laptops, it caches password hashes like a windows machine does so you can skip the whole mobile profile mess. That's actually how I started using the product.
