    I'm having trouble getting the mobile account option to work on a
    Macbook with a user who did not select to have one created during her
    first login to our AD. Now she wan'ts one, how can I go about
    creating one? It is working for anyone else who logs in on the
    laptop, but since she selected no, I can't figure out how to activate
    it after the fact.

    thanks - BW

    AD = Active directory. He's joining her Macbook to a Windows Domain.

    I don't know if this will work, but:

    - Go into the configuration for Active Directory in Directory Access.
    - Under User Experience, check "Create mobile account at login" and
    uncheck "Require confirmation before creating mobile account".

    Then have her log in and see what happens.

    It does not work, they only way I've been able to is by deleting the
    account (a test one of course) and starting over.
