Classic is the emulator for Mac OS 9. Advanced settings supports the following management modes: Never, Always.
The Advanced tab settings allow you to configure the following features of Classic:
Select this option to allow users to explicitly start or restart Classic from the Classic preference pane.
Classic uses a Desktop environment cache to improve performance. Select this option to allow users to rebuild the Desktop environment. This can be helpful to resolve issues with icons and application associations. Leave this option deselected to disallow users from rebuilding the Mac OS 9 Desktop.
Select to store Classic-related preferences in each user's home directory rather than in the Classic system directory. The first time Classic starts after you select this option, users will see the following message: "Would you like the contents of these folders copied from your Classic system folder?" This is asking if you want to copy Preferences (and other folders) from the Mac OS 9 System Folder to your home directory. The process of copying may require a few minutes, and there is no indication of progress. Classic continues to start when this is finished.
Select to hide Chooser and Network Browser from users.
Select to hide Control panels from users.
Select this option to hide Apple Menu Items from users.
Select to cause Classic to sleep (release OS resources) after a specified period of inactivity.
On Mac OS X the Dock is similar to a tool bar on other operating systems. In addition to showing which applications are running, the dock provides quick shortcuts to applications, folders and documents as well as system controls. Dock settings allow you to adjust the behavior of the user’s Dock and specify which items appear in it.
You can apply Dock Properties settings under both Computer Configuration and User Configuration.
Dock Items tab settings control the applications, files and folders that are displayed on the user's Dock and support the following management modes: Never, Once, Always.
You can insert three types of items into the user's Dock: Applications, Documents and Folders. The Applications list controls which applications are inserted. The Documents and Folders list controls documents and folders that are inserted into the user's Dock. Click Add to select the items to insert in the Dock. You can drag the items within the list to change the order in which they appear on the Dock.
In addition to standard Unix paths, you can specify a network share by using the following syntax:
cifs://<server hostname>/<share name>
Folder paths support two types of macro-expansions. First, the %@ macro expands to the user's Unix name. Additionally, you can expand any active directory attribute using the %<attributename>% macro. For example, to add the user’s network home directory to the dock, specify %homeDirectory%. You can get the value for any user attribute using the %<attributename>% macro. These macros are only supported by user policies; machine policies do not support either of these macro types.
Note: When adding a Dock icon for Documents and Folders on Mac OS X 10.4, it only opens a window to the mount point and not to sub-folders.
The following options are also supported:
Select to merge the specified items into the user's Dock. If you do not select this option, the specified items replace the user's Dock.
Select to add predefined folders to the user's Dock. Authentication Services supports My Applications and Documents.
Dock Display tab settings allow you to configure options that affect the visual display of the user's Dock and support the following management modes: Never, Once, Always.
The following options are supported:
Select to control the size of the Dock window on the user's Desktop.
Select to control the size of magnification when the mouse cursor hovers over an item on the Dock.
Position on screen
Select this option to control where on the screen the Dock is anchored. Options include Bottom, Left and Right.
Select to control the visual effect used when applications are minimized to the Dock. Options include Genie and Scaled.
Animate opening applications
Select to animate (bounce) the application icons on the Dock as the application loads.
Automatically hide and show the dock
Select to hide the Dock automatically. When you position the cursor over the Dock it displays itself automatically. Leave this option deselected leave the Dock visible at all times.
