Apple is working to attract more IT professionals to Mac OS X with a seminar series called ”
Integrating Mac OS X on Campus.” The goal of the seminar — which promises to provide “real-world solutions for installing, maintaining, and managing Mac OS X systems in any environment” — is to show how easily Mac OS X can be integrated into mixed computing systems.
Participants will learn how the Unix-based operating system integrates with Active Directory, LDAP v3 and Kerberos. They’ll also get a look at some open source client management tools, including Radmind and RsyncX. Apple engineers will participate, as will people from universities and colleges participating in the
Mac OS X Lab Deployment Project.
The project’s goal is to simplify the task of installing and maintaining Mac OS X in a computer lab. The Mac OS X Lab Deployment Project Web site serves as a means of communication and collaboration among those working on the project and the area for obtaining published information and data on their work.
