Ok, I applied the combo patch for mac os x 10.5, the user rebooted,
and I checked the user is getting properly authenticated on the windows
2003 server. The user still has the issue of being able to opena a file
inside parallels and not able to open that same file (not at the same
time, duh) in mac os x.
What to try next?
