We currently run an Apple Mac domain which has an OSX Server 10.5.8 as the main directory services server. This serves approx 75 Macs all running 10.5.8. In workgroup manager we have 1200 users with Mac accounts. In our organisation we also run a Windows 2008 domain using Active directory. This also has 1200 users. So basically a single user has 2 logins, 1 for the mac domain and 1 for the Windows domain. They also have a home drive on the mac domain and a seperate home drive on the Windows domain. What I would like to do is for the users to have a single login using their Active Directory username but have access to their home drives on the Windows domain and the mac domain. Anybody got any good advice on the best way to achieve this.
