I FOUND A SOLUTION. As has been pointed out, the root of the issue is that XSAN is mounting the volumes before Active Directory is ready for Prime Time. The solution is to stick a delay in the XSAN plist. I tried adding an entry in the hosts file to help speed up the DNS lookup, but that didn't always work. If any one needs this plist, please let me know and I will share it. Here is what the plist will look like... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>ExitTimeOut</key> <integer>240</integer> <key>HopefullyExitsLast</key> <true/> <key>Label</key> <string>com.apple.xsan</string> <key>LaunchOnlyOnce</key> <true/> <key>OnDemand</key> <false/> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/bin/bash</string> <string>-c</string> <string>sleep 60; /Library/Filesystems/Xsan/bin/xsand</string> </array> <key>ServiceIPC</key> <false/> </dict> </plist> You can copy and paste this into a plain text document and name it com.apple.xsan.plist You need to stick it here... /System/Library/LaunchDaemons Replace existing plist I hope this helps.
