I have recently set up a Windows 2008 server (R1) on my home network. I'm hoping to use this to eventually fill the complete void of networking/AD knowledge and as a backup to my programming experience. I've created a set of exercises that I hope will give me a tour of what is possible.
I have installed Active Directory and (I hope!) properly set up an internal domain. For my next steps I'd to have ITunes installed on any domain client computer that I or my family log into, with my central music repository as one of the source folders for the current user.
In order to minimize space usage , I'd like to force itunes not use the feature where it copies files to the local itunes directory. I'd also like for the itunes home directory to exist in each user's user directory on the server (to minimize 6 disparate copies of music across the network). For both of these, I believe I need to use something called a "Group Policy" in order to enforce this, but am not sure the best way to approach this.
How can I most effectively accomplish this task?
