Anyone else experiencing this problem? When I use the option to "Create User Account" and set it to "Disable welcome screen" my user ends up with no name as seen in System Preferences>Accounts, and I have to manually set their name to what it should be. The user definitely gets created because I can login as them, and there's a corresponding home folder for the user. My workflow is to take the Mac OS X 10.7.4 image from Lightning and restore it via DeployStudio.
The machine with Lightning is running 10.7.4. The DeployStudio bootable USB drive was also created on 10.7.4. I boot the target machine from that USB drive and pull down the image from a 10.6.8 server running DeployStudio. If I don't use Lightning, this method works fine. With Lightning it causes the null user name problem. I really hope I can use Lightning as it's an awesome tool that could potentially save me time. Thanks for making it!
I wanted to eliminate DeployStudio from the mix so here's what I just tried. On a 10.7.4 MacBook Pro, I ran Lightning and used a 10.7.4 version of "Install Mac OS X Lion.app". I set Lightning to create a local account and set it to disable the welcome screen. After it created the image I immediately restored it to another MacBook Pro, using Lightning and a firewire 800 cable. When I booted the newly restored MacBook Pro, I got the same problem. I can login as that user, but in System Prefs>Accounts, the "Full name:" is completely blank. Just thought I would pass this info along in case it's useful.
