Wanted to see how others are handling Macs in a primarily Windows active directory environment using Windows as the central manager for group policies.

More and more Macs are being added to our environment and most are tied to Xserve with Open Directory. We would like to use Windows group policy as the single central enforcement to lock down computers after specific time of inactivity and similar gpo tasks. We are looking for a solution that will enable our Macs to accept these policies directly from the Windows server, rather than  having to recreate the policies on the Xserve to deploy to our Macs.

If anyone has a current successful manageable deployment, insight, gotchas, successes and/or failures I would appreciate any and all input.
