Hey everbody! My names Chris. I work for a Public School in Massachuttess and we just recived 1 million dollars for technology spending from a town wide bond. Begin the Network Administrator it has become my job to decide where we should spend this money. I have decided to overall the entire network replacing all servers and desktops with Macs (G5s for the Servers and iMacs for Desktops). But I have run into a few jams and I was woundering if anyone out there could help me. 1)Well currently we are using Novell Netware as our file and user managment server. But I cant seem to find anything that is equvillant to Netware on the Mac. I also wanted to rollout Novell's Nterprise Services but they have not been ported to the MacOS X. Does anyone have any ideas? 2)I am also using a workstation managment software that only runs on Windows. This software lets me remote control systmes and blast images on to each machine. Will Remote Desktop allow me to do that? 3)Security is a big thing and I know macs are known for there security. Does anyone know if the MacOS X firewall could handle 600+ computers all acccessing the internet at the same time and will it give me the flexablity I need with such a demanding network? Ok thats need for know. Lets hear what you got!
