Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern

Active Directory: Mac’s upgraded to macOS High Sierra aren’t working correctly with Active Directory(AD). ITS staff aren’t being made admins by group, despite it being specified. Not all AD functions are broken new users are able to log onto a machine. It seems the remedy is to re-bind the computer to AD. Need to test with native High Sierra computers.
