Issues to address:

  1. Configuring your mac to use your UnityID/paswd (specifically, by authing against the DCs, but alternatively against the campus KDC). Plus how the laptop reacts when not on the network - should be caching.
  2. Adding your Mac to the domain.
  3. Restricting access to AD defined users.
  4. Printing from your domain'd mac to a Windows print server; and to a WolfCopy printer.
  5. Accessing Windows file shares from your domain mac
  6. Why DFS doesn't work, or if the new OS fixes this. And steps to get around this (3rd party apps - AdmitMac) or things to look out for).
  7. Options to apply policies to the mac client via GP? (likely to require 3rd party apps)
  8. Scripts to inventory hardware/applications on your mac clients (longterm we'd want a WolfTech Collector Agent for Macs)
  9. AFS client for Macs
  10. Software distribution to Mac via GP?
