Here is the problem:

I have three macs (and more to come) all running Lion and five familly members aging from 8 and up to 40 all sharing the same machines. I have a hardtime as 'sys-op' copying programs files etc across the different machines and maintain userprofiles, mail-settings ...

So is there a cheap and simple way to create a network service that allows me to automatically push the different user-settings to all the machines? All three macs are MacBook Pros used locally and on the road so it has to be available 'off-line' from my LAN.

I have a Synology NAS with a LDAP-installed but this doesnt seem to work. Could Lion server do the job? I have a hardtime figuring out if settings from a Lion Server works when the computer is not in the LAN and without net connection at all.
QUOTE Thanks

No connection at all then no, it wont work. Server would do it, but it would have to be connected to the same LAN as all the rest.

As to how, I dont know, yet. I have my MacMini Server coming Friday. Once I get it up and running and going, I may be able to give you an easy way to do it, unless someone know more now who can answer.
