Macs with Mac Server on Windows Domain with AD Authentication
Our performing arts department are looking at getting some iMacs for music production. They are also looking at getting a Mac server to help manage these clients. My question is - is it possible to integrate the Mac server onto a Windows Active Directory domain?
Further, The idea would be that students save their music files onto the Mac server but user authentication is done via Active Directory. Once they log on, they have a drive mounted on their desktop which is their personal share on the Mac server. The Mac server should also configure proxy settings on the Mac as well as other things.
Is this possible?
Hopefully, what I have written above makes sense - I've never really used Macs before, let alone in a mixed network environment.
Thanks in advance for your help/advice.
