Network Account Logins

Recommended Posts

I currently manage mac labs running ~50 machines. My campus will be buying an os x server eventually, but until then we are authenticating against active directory for our users to login.


Here is my question. I know its possible but I cannot remember how. What I want to do is setup a default profile on the macs (administrator, etc) then when a student logs in using their network user name and password via the "other" selection at the login screen, I want their account to mirror the main account that was created on the iMac. Is this possible to do without os x server, if so how? For example, dock, wallpaper, energy saver prefs, etc that have already been setup on the main Administrator account. Thanks!!

As far as I know you can't do this without a version of Server. I've never had networked home directories going without a mac running server anyway (although I can't say I've seriously tried).
