I have an existing infrastructure where accounts are maintained under NIS (yp) with no local unix accounts. Also, all the standard maps including hosts, mail aliases, netgroups, etc...are maintained in this form. Extensive use of the UNIX/Linux automounter with items scattered over the network on NFS servers. There are NO ACLs on any local or shared files. All mail needs to use basically the nullclient sendmail configuration feeding into a different system.
I now have a requirement to integrate an Apple OSX 10.6 system into this environment and make it run seamlessly.
My initial reading and second-hand information seems to indicate that this may not be possible on the native OSX 10.6 system. I'm concerned.
Any ideas as to how to accomplish this task and make everybody happy?
PS: I have never used an Apple OSX system.
