If you use mobile home directories on Mac OS X 10.6 or OS X 10.7 with Windows Server 2008 R2 based SMB home shares, you can run into permission issues during home sync.
In Harald Monihart’s and my (german) O’Reilly book “Professionelles Mac-Client-Management in Windowsumgebungen” we describe how to use computer lists in Active Directory to manage your Mac clients.
To make this work, you need to extend your AD schema. We describe this process in our book, but you can also read it in our free sample chapter on the O’Reilly site.
More and more enterprises want to integrate Mac clients into existing Windows or UNIX/Linux environments without the need to buy, set up and maintain additional Mac servers.
I agree with these companies that it can be very efficient to extend an existing infrastructure for Mac client management, as this allows you to use your support teams for this new task without big changes in organization, operation and infrastructure.
