I'm after a big favour for a colleague... please read on.
I have a teacher I know whose IT Manager has just bought a load of Mac and wants to do the following but he's got stuck... Can you let me know if you or someone else you know of may have a solution and be prepared to forward some instructions or get in touch.
The guy I knew who was great with network managing left my old school and I've lost touch.
'Hey Richard, you've been incredibly helpful to me in the past so I'm wondering if you might be again...baring in mind I know you must be really busy.
Thing is, my IT manager has finally got fed up with my PC's never working properly and has gone out and bought brand new Macs as he's heard they just work..which will be an amazing amount of stress off my shoulders if this is the case.
Problem is he's trying to work them out, in particular how to compartmentalise the logins so each group has their own and can't fiddle about with any other groups work. Do you know how to do this and can you send instructions?
Also, I'm not connecting them up to the net or our network at school as I just need the pupils the be able to use Photoshop and do editing...is this going to adversely effect them in any way. I do hope not...
OK I think that's it. As soon as you have time some answers...or where to go to find them, will be amazing.
I am so grateful.'
Thanks for taking the time to mull over this thorny issue. It's a bit beyond me. :)
Kind regards, Richard
