In our org, we have approx 20k win clients, and about 300-400 macs. Unfortunately, our Mac guy decided to get a different job, so for those of us left behind, we've been attempting to play catch-up accross those systems.
So, aside from my disclaimer that I don't like them AT ALL (it takes the same amount of effort to manage such a small amount of macs we have, versus the 20k windows machines)... Would somebody be able to point me in the right direction on configuring a wireless enterprise policy against them?
On our windows side, we use group policy to deploy our enterprise wireless settings, and our PCs work absolutely wonderful with this scenario. I have yet to be able to get any MACs to authenticate. Mostly because of my lack of understanding on these things.
I have a few questions, mostly relating to ~how~ the macs support 802.1x - In our windows enviornment, our 802.1x is based against the machine itself. The unit fires up and authenticates against our NPS server, which in turn allows it network access. Since the newtwork is available at that point, everyone can utilize their AD accounts to log in. I'm not seeing this is the case with the Mac clients, and every step of the way - it looks like it wants a username & password to be able to authenticate.
Please see the attached group policy report against our windows clients, and if possible, could somebody translate how we could get our group policy settings migrated over to the MAC world? *We do use "Centrify", but I'm not seeing anything relatively close to being able to mimic the windows settings.
I'm willing to try out any suggestion, but please be patient as I implement anything, as I'd like to understand exactly what it is that we're going for, rather than copy/pasting a solution. And I really do apologize in advance for my lack of understanding on these things... I haven't liked macs in the slightest since I first met them, but now it seems that they're slowing getting revenge against me.
