We have recently purchased 10 iMacs which we wish to use for network users. We currently use windows server 2008 with active directory and apply restrictions to the workstations using group policy applied to the users.
We wish to have a similar set up for the iMacs so restricting a group of users from installing applications, altering system applications, changing settings etc on the Mac OS X Platform. I have looked on the internet to find out how to do this however have come up with very little information.
I'm looking for an open source or an affordable solution that can manage security and restrictions on a mac remotely by applying it to user groups. Any ideas on this would be great.
