    I am thinking of getting a Mac OS X server and wondering how it iterfaces with Windows Active Directory. Specifically if it has the ability to perform the PDC Emulator role.

    It can act as a PDC through the Samba service and can connect to an AD server to either get authorization for services from the server or copy the users and groups via Open Directory. They made really big strides in OS X 10.6 in general for AD integration.

    Just to be clear on this. In a windows network it could replace the FSMO role holder, correct?
