    Re: How to add Mac (OS X) to Active Directory

    When dealing with Mac OS in AD infrastructure try to enable option "store password reversible encryption" in Active Directory Users and Computers on accounts that are MAC related. This means that password is not encripted, like plain text password, something you don't want to have, so be sure to enable it ONLY for users that are using MAC not everybody!

      Thanks for your quick reply. Do you know where can I find documentation regarding joining a Mac computer into Microsoft Network (meaning, Login to the Domain as a regular PC and getting Network Resources - Network Drives)?

          I have the feeling you are not asking the right question here... Like you want to achieve something, thought of a solution and you ask how to do it...
          But what would have happen if you asked how to achieve that something? Maybe adding an OS-X to the AD is not the best/most efficient/easiest solution? For example, if you want to define network shares on the OS-X, accessible from users in the domain, then SAMBA might help...

            mac can be set up to access windows shared using smbmount, there is even a gui interface for that. but I?m not sure it will keep passwords in memory instead of asking for them every time
