    Mac- How do you lock down for students

    Can anyone help me get my head round locking down macs for student use

    i do not want the students to be able to run things in core services or utilities

    we have workgroup manager running
    have groups for staff and students

    i don't want to white list everything in wgm i just want to stop them fiddling with the settings

    How do you guys do it

    would using wgm to deny access to utilities and the coreservices folders work?

    Yeah, if you put those locations into the Applications tab under 'Disallow applications within these folders'.

    I've never explicitly banned apps in the CoreServices folder though, as I would imagine you get some OS usability problems if you do. You're probably better off finding ways of making sure they can't access it in the first place. I assume pupil accounts are non-administrator? In which case they shouldn't be able to get into it anyway.
