Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me.

Basically I work in a college which has approximately 100 macs. We use network accounts which currently authenticate to Open Directory and have a SAN which contains all of the user areas.

We also have a large network of PC's, which students can use by authenticating to Active Directory and have separate network drives to the mac network.

What I would like to do is allow our current users to authenticate to AD when logging in to the macs (they have exactly the same usernames in OD as they do in AD), but they need to be able to use their current mac home drives. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance
QUOTE Thanks
