        I have a Mac bound to a WIndows Active directory and am trying to figure out why when I login as a user in the AD domain global user agents don't run. Not only do the global user agents not run, there's no ~/Library/LaunchAgents directory for local user agents.

         

        BTW - The global user agents run when I login as a local user.

         

        I need user agents to run for AD domain users, so what do I need to do to enable them?

         

        Thanks

          there's no ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ directory for local user agents.

          Right, but that’s just a normal directory in the user’s home directory, so there’s nothing stopping you from creating it (modulo the server’s permissions setup).

          Not only do the global user agents not run

          Yeah, that’s the weird part.  The /Library/LaunchAgents/ directory is held on the local machine, and thus should apply to all users who log in on to that machine.  I’m at a bit of a loss as to why that wouldn’t work.

          Does anything show up in the system log?
