Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Remote Management

Description

Use the Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Remote Management settings to control Apple Remote Desktop access for zone users. You can use these group policies to give Active Directory group members permission to remotely control Mac computers without physically having to activate the Apple Remote Desktop on the remote Mac computer.

The Remote Management group policies correspond to the Manage > Change Client Settings options in Apple Remote Desktop and are similar to access privileges defined on a client computer using the Sharing system preference. For example:

Note:   Because the group policies correspond to the Manage > Change Client Settings options in Apple Remote Desktop, the group policy settings are not displayed in the local system preference on the Mac client. Although the tasks you can assign to different groups by group policy correspond to tasks you can assign using the local Sharing system preference on a Mac client computer, the group policy settings do not update the local system preference to display check marks for the tasks that the remote users have been given permission to perform.
