Anyone support MAC's in the Enterprise? Anyone use a MAC and have to support Windows clients? What IT support tools do you use on a MAC to support Windows? Are the tools limited in what you can do to support Windows from a MAC computer? Is there something that can do what Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) can do on a Windows client? My company is starting a pilot program and I wanted to see what other people are doing.

I know from when we had the Minasi conferences several years ago, there were several IT people with MacBook Pro's. Even Don Jones uses a MacBook Pro as his standard laptop. So figured if anyone knew, someone on this forum would know.

I'd write "Mac" not MAC but I use an iPad as my "laptop" now [wink] I know the company used Jamf for Mac management.

Yeah, looks like MAC was in my dictionary, so spell check kept capitalizing Mac to MAC.

Jamf looks like it manages Mac computers, but if you have a Mac, can you support the Windows environment. Is there a client that can be installed on a Mac that can do ADUC or SCCM so that you can support the Windows environment from a Mac? I know PowerShell can be installed on a Mac now. Or are there Apps for an iPad that can be used to support a Windows environment?

In my experience, everyone having to manage Windows from a Mac winds up with Parallels or VMware Fusion and a Windows VM sooner or later. Mostly sooner than later.

Didn't you mean auto complete not spell check & why can't it be disabled?
