I have connected my system to a Windows (Active Directory) Domain, and everything works for the most part.

Additionally, I have connected a Windows drive using NTFS-3G and its User Mapping feature to map a Windows SID to my User Account. I have a line in my /etc/fstab:

/dev/sdw1 /mnt/ ntfs-3g nofail,noatime 0 0

At boot, this line mounts the drive successfully, except it does not create the mappings for my Domain Accounts. However, if I log into a Domain Account first and then mount the drive manually (umount /dev/sdw1 && mount /dev/sdw1), it does mount and reflect permissions for the Domain account.

So, at boot, ls -l /mnt/Users looks like:

drwx------ 1 root root 4096 Jan  1  2000 user1

whereas after the manual mount, the same command produces:

drwx------ 1 DOMAIN\user1 root 4096 Jan  1  2000 user1

How do I ensure that my system (or at least NTFS-3G) recognizes the Domain accounts before connecting to the Domain?
