What it is:
  • A free replacement for the Mac-native AD plugin
What it provides:
  • Directory-Integrated logon to Macintosh workstations, for OS X 10.5 and later
Pros:
  • Free
  • compliant with current network security policy
Cons:
  • No management capabilities
  • Requires more client-side configuration than ADmitMac client (? Can this be offset using free deployment tools from Centrify?)
  • No replacement for Mac CIFS client
