Our default policy for Windows XP PCs is to log in to domain based accounts to access the PCs. Ctrl-alt-del - Username - password - domain
We have 1 Mac user. Currently he doesn't have to log in to his domain account to access the Mac.
It would be preferable to have the Mac user log on like any other user.
Google newsgroups, Mactopia tell me it can be done, but I need an entry level explanation for setting it up.
I can find out any AD settings etc that are necessary, but don't really know where to start on the Mac.

If anyone can help out or point me in the direction of some newbie friendly instruction I'd really appreciate it.

If I understand what you are asking, you want to disable all access on his machine uneless it is logged in with an account authenticated by active directory, is that correct?

Not necessarily disable the Admin account from logging on locally, but make it default to the AD account authentication

I think I've found the type of stuff I need.

Now to see if I can make it work.
