We are going to add Mac's with OS 10.6.x to our windows enviorment,
Our main Directory system with users are Active Directory.

Windows Server 2008 R2
Mac OS server 10.5.x
So my big question is now...


1) Whats the best way to combind AD and OD?

2) Is there a way that i can replica AD over to OD so users that is in AD are replicated over to OD. If this is possible then this alternative if preferred.

"a guide would be nice"

(Want to use OD as main Directory for Mac, but getting the user info from AD)

Thanks for your time ;)
