Recently, we were invited to participate in the local Angelbeat event for IT professionals. We’re both excited and honored to be talking about integration of Macs and iOS in real enterprise scenarios.
There’s lots of marketing fluff out there about how to do this, and the lion’s share of it is true. Lucky for us, we get to talk about it, because we do it all the time. This helps us be more realistic about what can, and can’t be done out of the box.
A good example of this is Active Directory integration. Sure, Macs can bind to a domain out of the box – they have been able to since 10.4. But make sure that the computer’s name is less than 16 characters, only alpha-numeric, numbers, – or _ characters can be used. And to be clear, using – or _ may be ok, but they aren’t valid components of standard DNS naming, and binding may not function as you’d expect.
