        • Microsoft Deployment Toolkit has helped to speed up the deployment of the client computers
      • Change
        • 4 networks to 1, new OS, new version of Office
    • 11. Group Policy Challenges
      • Staff are issued with a laptop which can be used at home
      • Their work needs to sync with the laptop, but not sync when they log in to a desktop
      • This is achieved with WMI filtering of GPOs so that syncing only happens on there laptop
    • 12. Successes

      • App-V extensively used to roll-out new applications

      • IASO Backup software causing some problems
      • User provisioning has been problematic
      • Some user data failed to transfer
      • Need to deploy SCCM once the App-V apps are imported
    • 14. Tips
      • WMI filtering and Security Filtering for Group Policy Objects
      • Group Policy Preferences – we no longer need a login script at drives are mapped via GPO’s
      • MDT is a fantastic tool....and it’s free!!
      • MDOP – App-V is a real time saver!
    • 15. Future Developments
