      Presentation Contents
    • Twynham Strategy
      Mature network
      Profile based user accounts
      Needed to change to policy based
      Used the RC of windows 7 to setup Group Policies
      Only student workstations and laptops
      Staff laptops all reinstalled by January 2010 (currently running Vista)
      Because of release date very little time - 2 week window of opportunity
    • Deployment
      Could have use WDS, SCCM but time a limiting factor
      Used Ghost as we have a proven track record
      Got the job done
    • Success
      Profiles gone. Totally policy driven
      Better printer deployment now works previously issues when using XP
      Students love it. Zero adoption problems (Probably because they use Vista at home??)
      Group policy preferences now no problem and offer us much in the future
      NO driver issues
    • Challenges
      After initial teething problems all good
      Start menu
      My docs sync issues
      Offline files
      2008 R2 and Windows 7 better together
      Only just scratched the surface
      Bit locker more secure for staff laptops (Ticks some BECTA boxes)
      App locker
      Search
      Direct Access with Server 2008 R2
    • Failures
      3rd party software solution which should have been done through group policy
      Applying group policy forced
      Pushed min spec to the limit
    • Top Tips
      DON’T BE FIRST or learn from networking
      Test login speeds and load test
      Deploy RC but this could be a risky strategy
    • “What would I do better next time”
      Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again. (Franklin P. Jones)
      That is why we are here so we can all answer this together and hopefully fill in this slide at the end so others can learn from our mistakes
