Hey, I need some help. I think this might be an interesting discussion to have here and might actually help someone else in same situation. I've identified a number of ways how to integrate windows & mac computers into a network, this means it's mixed environment OS X and Windows only. Let me just pin point that it's for a enterprise network. Here comes a definition of enterprise network from technopedia.com Can we have a discussion on which of these identified options in your opinion the best and possibly naming a few pros and cons? Or possibly if you have similar setup running share your experience? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I've identified following options how to do such setup. 1. Shared network/Basic file sharing Sharing network resources just using AFP/SMB protocol 2. Virtualization & Boot Camp Having Windows in Virtual Machine/Natively running on a Mac and accessing the network resources from the Windows which would be tied to an Windows server AD. 3. Remote Acesss Accessing a remote computer which would be used to access the network. (could be either windows/os x running on remote computer) 4. Windows server/Active Directory OS X workstation can be added to an Active Directory. This means unified user logins, however almost no security (policies) management over os x systems via windows server tools, unless third party solution like Centrify is used. 5. OS X Server/Open Directory Windows can be added to an Open Directory. However likewise there would be no control over windows stations as OS X Server tools don't support group policy management tools and I'm unaware of third party solution to this. 6. Windows Server & Mac OS X Server This solution is referred to as "Magic or Golden Triangle" or "Dual Directory". Having two separate server is the network which would be serving for it's workstations e.g. Windows Server to Windows Workstations, OS X Server to OS X Clients. 7.
