Centrify DirectControl on Mac OS X 10.7
On Mac OS X 10.7, the new features "Auto Save" and "Versions" are introduced to save changes to documents automatically and keep an ongoing record of the document.
AD users configured with a network home directory cannot save any documents to their network home folders if using an application that uses the "Auto Save" and "Versions" feature (e.g. TextEdit, iWork, etc.).
The problem is caused by an Apple bug where the "Auto save" mechanism fails to save when using a network home directory.
(Apple bug #10088097)
Create the AD user as a Mobile Account instead of Network Account.
Use the "Delete, and create symbolic link" group policy to redirect the auto save folder on the network share to any local folders.
For the TextEdit app;
For the iWork app;
Redirect: ~/Library/Autosave Information
Notice: It is not recommended to redirect to /tmp/ as this directory is cleaned out when the Mac is rebooted.
