Lesson 9. Managing Accounts > Managing Preferences

Managing Preferences

When you manage preferences, you centrally control the configuration of specific system settings. You also control users' ability to change those settings, as well as their ability to access applications, printers, removable media, or even certain computers. Information about preferences and their settings in user, group, or computer records is stored in a directory domain accessible to Workgroup Manager, such as the LDAP directory of an Open Directory master. In addition, a copy of group preferences is stored on the workgroup's folder and a copy of user preferences is stored in the user's home folder (the Home folder on Mac OS X computers).

After user, group, and computer list accounts are created, you can start managing preferences for them using the Preferences pane in Workgroup Manager. To manage preferences for Mac OS X clients, you should make sure that each user you want to manage has either a network or local home folder.
