I'm puzzled: today I have tried to to connect to to my Mac at the office. To do so I use my company's active directory user account (this account has admin permissions on the Mac). The connection has been refused.
So I connected using my local admin account and succeeded.
Now a few things are puzzling me:
- My network user account is not showing up in the list of users ion the Sys Prefs. Is it supposed to be there or are network account never showing up there?
- If I login using SSH, Mac OS claims that my network account no longer has SUDO permissions.
- Looking at the disk shows me a folder under "Users" that belongs to my network user ("rene") but I cannot access it with the local admin account.
- If try to switch to the network account while connected via ARD, the connection is closed. Afterwards I cannot reconnect until I reboot the Mac.
The Mac is running Lion.
Main issue is: the network user has files on disk that are extremely important. How can I get to these files? And what the hell happened to my network account? How can I get it back?
