To determine what type of user account you have on your computer, open up a terminal window and type or paste in the following:
dscl . -readall /Users | grep -ic LocalCachedUser
Then hit "return".
This command will return a number to you. If that number is "0" then you have a Local account. If that number is anything else, you have a Mobile account.
