Note: Screenshots previously available in a separate document have been removed as they have become dated and confusing.

Action
  • Steps
Done
If not already done, resynch user password  
Obtain the ADMitMac Client   
Run the installer
  • Open the disk image, run the ADmitMac installer
  • At the Welcome screen, click continue. 

  • At the Software License screen, click Agree,  then continue.

  • At the installation destination screen, select the local HD, then click continue

  • At the Easy Install screen, click "Install", then wait ... wait ... wait  while the HD is "optimized".

  • "Installed Successfully", click CLOSE.

 
Run the Setup Assistant The Setup Assistant will spawn automatically after the installer runs
(If you need to run setup again later, it can be found in Library->Application Support->ADmitMac->ADmitMac Setup Assistant):
  • click the lock to authenticate
  • welcome screen - click continue

  • Configuring WINS - "My Network Uses WINS" should be checked, and the current UVM WINS server IPs should be pre-populated.  Accept the defaults, then click continue.

  • Security Policy settings - accept default selection "Send NTLM response only".

  • Join to a domain:

    • enter "CAMPUS.AD.UVM.EDU" as the domain.

    • change the OU for the workstation to "OU=workstations,DC=campus,DC=ad,DC=uvm,DC=edu"

    • enter the username and password of an account with rights to join the domain. (Note: Not just anyone can do this!  Only CIT Client Services Staff and distributed IT staff who have requested this right can perform this step!)

    • click continue - you will be prompted to provide credentials for a local administrator account

  • Convert a Local User - *feature disabled in ADmitMac v2.1

  • At the Register screen, skip the registration process, and click "continue"

  • At the conclusion screen, click "Launch Directory Access", then click Quit.

 
Complete Configuration Using the "Directory Access" Utility The "Directory Access" Utility will now launch
  • Click "authentication" tab, verify appropriate path:

    • Under "Available Directories", "/ADmitMac/CAMPUS.AD.UVM.EDU" should be listed.

  • Click the "services" tab, click "ADmitMac", then click "configure":

    • Under the "Home folders" tab, select "Use Local folder, Mount Network folder"

    • Under the "login policy" tab, select an arbitrary large number (such as "999999")

  • Exit directory access.

 
Copy local account "Home" for network user In the launch Library->Application Support->ADmitMac->Home Mover:
  • Under the "Duplicate a User" tab, select "Copy, preserving source files".
  • Under "Source User", enter the local user name whose Home folders you wish to reassign.
  • Under "Target User", enter the NetID of the user who wishes to use these existing Home folders.
  • Click "copy", and wait for the operation to complete
 
Add network account as a local administrator, if desired. If you were not prompted to add the network user to the local admins group in the above step, you will need to do so now. 
Launch "Directory Access" in Applications->Utilities:
  • Under the "services" tab, double-click "ADmitMac"
  • Under the "Domain Setup" tab, select the "campus.ad.uvm.edu" domain, then select the "Mappings" tab.
  • Check "Map admin group to", then enter the UPN (<NetID>@campus.ad.uvm.edu) of the user to be assigned administrative privileges on the local system.  Multiple user UPNs can be separated by commas.
 
Set login options In "System Preferences", select "Accounts", then select "Login options":
  • Clear the "Automatically log in as:" box.
  • (optional) Set "Display Login Window As" to "Name and Password".
 
Login as network user
  • For good measure, you may want to reboot your Macintosh at this time.
  • At the login window, enter your NetID and password.  A Macintosh Home should load which is a carbon copy of the local Home previously in use.
 
Mount department shared directory
  • In the finder, select Go->Connect to Server, enter "cifs://files/shared" as the path. 
  • You may wish to add this connection to your favorites. 
  • Also, you may wish to highlight the mounted share, then select File->make alias from the finder.  This makes a shortcut to the network share which can be double-clicked to mount the share (when disconnected).
  • If you wish to make an alias for a folder under //files/shared, you must hold down the option and apple keys while dragging the folder to the desktop or dock.
 
Fix Keychain If the user has been caching application passwords in the Macintosh "Keychain Manager" (most people do...), you may need to change the User's keychain manager password.
  • If the original local User account password is different from the Network User account password, go to Applications->Utilities->Keychain Manager
  • Change the keychain manager password by entering the original local user account password in the "old password" field, then the network user account password in the "new password" fields.
