Subject: Re: Network users and the default User Template
on Apple's discussion forum suggested I post this question here, I am not sure
why. Anyway, they authentication to a Netware LDAP server and the home
directories are hosts on an AFP volume on the same server. We don't use an
Xserve for this. If the template could live on the server, I could do that, I
just don't know where to put it on that AFP volume.
for taking the time to reply :)

You might get more responses if
posted to the client management or osxserver list.
When you say the users authenticate
via ldap, do you mean that the users are network home users hosted on a mac os
x server? If so, were you sure to edit the user template on the server rather
than the client(s)?

We have several Macs that authenticate via LDAP and have their home directory

logging into the Macs for the first time that creates certain folders and files
in their home directory. I have looked at using the User Template functionality
in Mac OS X for this, but for some reason when a user is logging into a network
account, it seems to ignore the default User Template I created.
I followed the directions here: http://www.makemacwork.com/customize-the-user-template.htm
and did a fix disk permissions afterwords.
When a new network user logs into the Mac, none of the things I have set up in
my new default template get brought over.
Any ideas? Thank you!
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
