Specify the type of remote file service to use for the network home directory. The options are: SMB (default) and AFP. This group policy only applies to Mac OS X computers. When you type a path for the network home directory in Active Directory, it requires the format
/server/share/path, but on Mac OS X computers, the format for mounting a network directory requires the remote file service type as part of the path
/type/server/share/path. By identifying the remote file-service type, you can type the network path in the format required by Active Directory, and convert the path into the format required by Mac OS X computers.
This group policy modifies the
auto.schema.remote.file.service parameter in the agent configuration file.
