Fortunately, Noah Gift has already written a 3-part series titled “Discover the Power of Open Directory” that covers almost all aspects.
- Covers the basics of Open Directory setup and set up of an OS X Client
- Covers setting up of a Mac with NFS Home Directory using Open Directory, integrate an existing Linux NFS File Server and authenticate a Linux Client into Open Directory
- Covers MCX (Manage Client for OS X), specific LDAP attributes for Mobile User accounts and integrated Windows into Open Directory for authentication and Home Directories (yikes!)
The articles look very thorough. I am yet to go over them but I am looking forward to.
