    AutoDomain driving us AutoCrazy

      We cant nail down when this started happening, and seem to be hard pressed to duplicated it here in the lab, but it is happening all over the field... where the local IT staff is hard pressed to get us log files, etc... their Doctors just need the machines ASAP... and since we are still in a deployment phase... Mgt is allowing them to just remove / bypass SafeBoot, for now.

      Thats point of frustration one.. grin now let me get into the problem we are having.

      We have created a Machine group in EEMC called Integration.
      A package just for that group has been created.
      The package is stored in a SafeBoot folder under c:\drivers, and is called right after Sysprep finishes, and reboots once with auto local admin privs.
      Actually, it goes like like this -
      Autologin as Local admin
      Altiris A and NS clients are installed
      Integration.exe (package) runs / installs
      McAfee 8.5 and patches install
      Framework installs
      About here you get the MS pop up in the upper Left corner something about EEPC Wizzard
      it finishes and the machine reboots.

      We now have a machine created and working in EEMC.
      Machine synch, reboot, and gets the SafeBoot login screen.
      The way we are configured, new user puts in BYPASS and PASSWORD at login screen...
      Brings them to a Windows login... they log in - and within a few seconds get the SafeBoot provisioning screen asking them to put in their domain password 2x.
      This works... except when you check the EEMC console... the machine (say ID 121) is now in the recycle bin, a new machine with the same name is in the Integration folder (id is now 122) and that entry will not synch, but has the user provisioned. If you pull the original machine out the reycyle - it will synch, but doesnt have the user provisioned. If you manually add the user to the recently deleted machine and synch - all is good... until the next new user logs in and tries to provision.

      This is not on all machines, so we are at a loss for the cause.
      Thought it was version, so we upgraded from 5.2.1 (had to upgrade here from 5.19 as KB wasnt working in dock) to 5.2.2 ... and it still seems to happen.

      Server : 5.2.2
      Package : 5.2.2
      AutoDomain : 5.19 (provided by McAfee folks who came out to assist in setup, but now wont answer our emails)
