Using GPO 'logon' feature of AD for the MAC clients joined to AD domain

    General discussion

  • Hi

     

    I have been trying to make automatic log-in for my shares on MAC client when i login a AD user into the MAC client.In short i am searching for alternative of the functionality called 'logon' GPO which AD gives while logging into Windows client joined.

    AD keeps the logon script with it and while logging in at the Windows clients with AD user credentials ,the share gets mapped automatically.But is it poosible to do same for the MAC clients that are part of the AD domain.

     

    Let me know if there are any ways to do automatic mapping of my share while logging in into the MAC client(that is joined to AD domain) with AD user.

     

    Appreciate your help in advance,

     

    Thanks,

    Manu

    That's a MAC question, so I'd suggest searching MAC related forums :)

  • Hi Manu,

    Based on the description, for this mainly involves third party product, in order to get better help, as Martin suggested, it's recommended that we contact vendor support to ask for advice.

  • Thanks Frank and Martin

    Yup,i thought that this is MAC client and posted in apple forum (https://discussions.apple.com/message/27524709#27524709) but i have'nt received any reply from them :(.

    So i understood that we needed some third party tools for this GPO functionality to work with MAC client,just in case if there is any documentation from Microsoft side on "how to use GPO functionality for MAC client joined to Microsoft AD domain" ,kindly let me know.

    Thanks,

    Manu

    Most of GP technology is fully documented:
     
    Check all docs starting with MS-GP, start with MS-GPOL :)
