the AD? Something that is only done when this is enabled during install?

Only ever tried this in 10.2.
When you do not join the AD at installation and choose local auth, all
users will be placed in /home/<user>.
When you then later join AD and make your default auth AD (NOTE: this is
two separate things in Linux, not like on Windows), users will be in
Moving users to the new location did not work for me? to many badly

(this could be different in 11.0?)

Same in 11.0. I think it is this way because the same user name can
exist in different Windows domains.

But this was not the difference I meant. I just was curious if joining
the Windows domain after install was in any way different from joining
it during install.
