View Full Version : Authentication Delays on Mobile Accounts

28th April 2011, 10:36 AM
So I broke things on my laptop and have been rebuilding slowly on fresh installs of Snow Leopard with my old mobile account on Snow Leopard Server.

Here's the catch though - I only recently upgraded to Snow Leopard Server and prior to this was using Leopard Server. Using SL, I rebuilt the user accounts in Workgroup Manager and fixed all the user IDs etc to match their Leopard counterparts but something seems to have changed significantly since.

Whenever I use a mobile account away from the home network, authentication as an administrator with the mobile account takes longer than it needs to. I have checked Console and found that it appears to be freaking out about not being able to find the Kerberos server to verify the ticket before it gives up and just authenticates based on local Admin privileges granted by the local machine.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
