I am using Zentyal 4.2 as an Active Directory.  It works great.  I tested the "Configuration Backup" feature by saving the configuration on my local machine, then built a new Zentyal machine and loaded the configuration into it.
The new machine works well.  The users can login to PCs without problems.  The users can login to Macs without problems except during login, a pop up message says 'There was a problem connecting to the server "pdc.INTRANET.LAN". Check the server name or IP address, and try again.'
After pressing the [ OK ] button, the user successfully logs in to the network.

I can prevent the pop up message from appearing by configuring the Mac to store a "Mobile" version of the user's account.
Note: If I switch back to the original machine, the Macs do not have this pop up problem.
