So, I have really tried to stay away from encouraging mac users in the domain. Last Friday a VP’s computer went down and I had it for the weekend. I decided to try some things new.
In a step to apple and pc reunion I bound the VP’s mac to the AD and set an AD home folder. I also went ahead and migrated his account over to a mobile account because I really liked the SSO and the ability to sync the home folder while offline (i had problems with this on another VP’s mac). But things seem to be working very well.
Ill have to do a little training with the VP now that office has Outlook and his computer is fully bound to the AD.
this resource helped a lot in the user account migration process:
