I need to make a decision as to what would be the best way to FULLY integrate Macs into an Active Directory domain.
Windows Server 2012 domain controller
Mac OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5
I read this article where they explain how to add a Mac to AD
But I need more details like what does this simply adding the Macs to the domain give me in terms of functionality which I'm guessing is just user authentication
Bottom line, can you please tell me what would be the pros to having a OS X Server running in a VM right beside the Windows domain controller, as opposed to just adding the Macs to the domain (as per the article above).
