Mac home directory not working
Steps to reproduce:
1. Configure automounting of home directories on a Mac.
2. After configuring reboot the system
3. Look under /var/root/Library/Preferences and a com.qas.qasrecords.plist

the network home directories are located and premounts the share they're
located on. After a while user home directories are no longer mounted until they delete that plist and reboot the box.
