    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
