900 Users on ~50 Macs and ~150 PC's... I don't pay more for a simple
tool to mount Homedirectories than for the main Operating-System.
Homedirectories are exported via an SMB-Server on Linux, that
authenticates via LDAP to an Campuswide (~8000 Users)eDirectory.
PC's and Macs have to use the same Single-Sign-on Point at an Active
Directory (that also authenticat to tha main eDirectory).
I wish i get ONE TIME that, what Apple promise :-(
