comment How to Automatically Create Home Directory for Active Directory User on Solaris (using PowerBroker)
Could you expand on these workarounds at all? Or point me in the direction of a website? Tried Googling the terms you used, but it didn't show anything that looked helpful.

comment How to Automatically Create Home Directory for Active Directory User on Solaris (using PowerBroker)
The home directory does get created automatically at logon, but I want to automate this so when a new user is created this happens without needing to login. The reason is that users might be created by someone who is not knowledgeable and thus won't know how to login to Solaris via SSH and it probably isn't wise to show them. Will logging into Windows really help here??

comment Active Directory Cross-Site Replication Speed - Should I select Preferred Bridgehead Servers?
Just want to add that my reasons are to improve the speed as users log on from each site depending on where they are and so can sometimes have issue cause changes haven't been replicated quickly :)

comment How to map AD Domain Admins group to Ubuntu admins
I found another site where they said to log in as the user and run the id command to see groups user is a member of. Domain Admins wasn't listed (added it in AD - sure it was before!), so I logged in as Administrator and it works. That account didn't work before, so your solution must have worked :) THANKS!

You know I really thought it would be something so simple, but unfortunately that doesn't work either :(

Thanks for the reply. Will wait and see what else is out there and then if no other answers are worthy, will mark yours as the answer!
