calling out to all people out there...


please help, or do u know where i can get/ ask for information

we have macs as well as pc's

the users/ macs authenticate using active directory.

the problem!!!! the users now cannot put anything on the local drive, but they can on the desktop!!! if any files/ folders and copied to the local drive it asked for a admin password. now we do not want to give admin privileges!!

is there any way around it, or some sort of setting i need to add.. its starting to do my head in!!!

anyone?

i have looked on macwindows.com there is alot of info on there, but cannnot find anything relating to the problem i have.

the macs are on active directory. now the user cannot add anyting files folders to the local drive, aprt from the desktop. now if i give premssion to the user to do so. then anyone else who logs in wont be able to save/ create file or folders on the local drive.

is there anyway around it?

cheers for all yr help

Have you checked the permissions for the user(s) or group(s). Thats more than likely the problem.

hi people

i diffently need your help on this...

entourage!!!!!!!!

the macs are on active directory, and the user login as nomal.

entourage seems to move the exchange mail to the local computer "folders on my computer" Rather then the users profile.

now i have repaired the database, and no joy. i have deleted the profile still no joy. so i have to delete the database and rece=reate it fro the user.. now that only works for a little while and then the e-mails start goping into "folders on my computer"

anyone please...

I assume this problem is happening on all Macs? My questions are,...

Are all Macs the same build of OS X?

What OS and SP is the active directory server running?

Have you modified group policy lately?

Have you tried just authenticating to the Mac?

Have you tried unbinding and rebinding to the AD domain?
