Setting user-based policies

This section describes user-based policies for Mac that you can set. The following table provides a summary of the group policies you can set for Mac users. These group policies are in the Centrify Mac administrative template (centrify_mac_settings.xml) and accessed from User Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings.

Note:   Group policies are only applied to users and computers in the GPO’s linked OU and any child OUs. Enable Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy > Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode in Merge mode to make sure user policies are applied to everyone who logs on to a Mac.
