I'm now setting up profile manager on my ML Server.


I have 5 iMacs and 5 users right now. 

Two users frequently switch between iMacs 1&2

and two other users frequently switch between iMacs 4&5

this depends on staffing for the day and who is doing particular things.


So, i'm a bit perplexed what I'm supposed to do with the assignment of users in profile manager.

Ideally, all 5 users would have their settings managed on all 5 devices, but it looks like i can only assign one user per device. 


I've created device profiles for basic things like energy saver, printers, etc.


But it seems that I have to also have user profiles for their mail settings, calendar settings, contacts settings, message settings, and sharepoints to mount

    Workgroup Manager ( the old way of managing) I've stuck with this cos it just seems easier and more flexible than profile manager
