Adventures in OS X - Part 1

Last week we had Chris Nacker's at our local user group to discuss MAC OS X management.  The SCCM client management on MACs is really basic at this time.  However since there is support for compliance, what you can do with it is really limited to your MAC shell scripting imagination as scripts can be used both to evaluate compliance and remediate it!  We recently started looking at managing OS X where I work.  Below are a few good like links to help you sift through the limited information that is out there on MAC OS X management with SCCM.
