    We have about 7 iMacs and 2 MacBooks here and I try to look after them myself. They are all running on our windows domain and I can cope with that, but when they want to expand, I may have some trouble doing it on my own.

    I have found that Apple themselves are not helpful when it comes to getting macs onto a windows domain. They told me they do not support it.

    I expect that's down to the infinite variations of how end users' networks / domains are set up. You would either need to research and implement it yourself, or pay a company to do it for you.

    With some research it's easily achievable without paying to a 3rd party if you have some time and the aptitude for it.

    That was how I had to do it in the end, it was very difficult though. But it it has been so worth while, the macs are by a mile the best behaved computers in the school. Just occasionally the odd one drops off the domain but that's nothing compared to our XP PC's. Of course I say that, I suspect as soon as we get more in, the likelihood of problems goes up!
