Add pictures to the login window for networked user accounts
Authored by: gaylward on Dec 28, '03 02:21:28PM

Most of OSX server functions are available to the standard OSX, but without the ease of using Workgroup manager. I am able to store the pictures on a networked drive, and edit the user accounts with the path to the picture, but I can't get the loginwindow to display them.

Does anyone know what the above hint does to netinfo to achieve this?

I'm pretty sure that the path that the hint creator mentioned must be duplicated for this to work. So you would need to get your sharepoint to mount at
/Network/Library/User Pictures/

I know this can be done fairly easily in server but it would require some digging in NetInfo Manager to accomplish this in client.

Hope this helps
will
