Adding Macs to AD Domain, accessing windows shares, printers, etc...

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Our company would like to begin bringing MacBooks in to the domain as client computers in the near future.  We run an Active Directory domain with file shares, Exchange,printers, SQL, etc... I realize that they will all need VMWare Fusion to run Windows virtual machines for some things, but what's the easiest way to at least have the MacBooks authenticate against AD, login to the domain, access file shares PERSISTENTLY (so it is automatic when they are in the office) and access network printers?
