Auto Zone remote file service (Mac OS X)

Specify the type of remote file service to use for the network home directory on Mac OS X computers. The default value is SMB.

When you type a path for the network home directory in Active Directory, it requires a specific format: /server/share/path, but on Mac OS X, the format for mounting a network directory requires the remote file service type:

By identifying the remote file-service type, you can type the network path in the format required by Active Directory, and Centrify DirectControl Agent translates the path into the format required by Mac OS X.

This group policy modifies the auto.schema.remote.file.service parameter in the DirectControl configuration file.
