comment Add Mac (OS X) to Active Directory DNS name resolution
@RobertAltman: Yes the Mac's will augment their local accounts with the AD accounts. So you can login with either type of account. If you have logged once on that laptop and then take it offsite, the login credentials will be caches, much like on Windows laptops. Existing user account will continue to exist; however, you could replace those accounts with AD accounts and user your AD roaming profile accounts instead and then manually copy over the account data.

comment Cannot connect to Active Directory Domain Controller
Just my thinking, but try to avoid use a .local domain. Instead use a subdomain of one that you own. Say corp.mydomain.com. It avoids future headaches and troubleshooting issues.

Instead of LACP, consider using MPIO with iSCSI as LACP may have scaling issues with 1 host and 1 SAN, depending on the configuration
