Transcript of "Win 7 Early Adopters' Forum. Twynham School Presentation"

  1. 1. Windows 7 Early Adopters’ Forum<br />Microsoft Reading 7th October 2009<br />
  2. 2. Twynham Team<br />Dave Coleman (Network Manager)<br />Neil Hodgkinson (Assistant Network Manager)<br />Chris McKinley (Web Developer/SQL Admin)<br />Mike Herrity (Lord of all he surveys) <br />
  3. 3. Strategy<br />Deployment<br />Success<br />Failure<br />Top Tips<br />“What would I do better next time”<br />Presentation Contents<br />
  4. 4. Twynham Strategy<br />Mature network<br />Profile based user accounts<br />Needed to change to policy based<br />Used the RC of windows 7 to setup Group Policies<br />Only student workstations and laptops<br />Staff laptops all reinstalled by January 2010 (currently running Vista)<br />Because of release date very little time - 2 week window of opportunity <br />
  5. 5. Deployment<br />Could have use WDS, SCCM but time a limiting factor<br />Used Ghost as we have a proven track record<br />Got the job done<br />
  6. 6. Success<br />Profiles gone. Totally policy driven<br />Better printer deployment now works previously issues when using XP<br />Students love it. Zero adoption problems (Probably because they use Vista at home??)<br />Group policy preferences now no problem and offer us much in the future<br />NO driver issues <br />
  7. 7. Challenges<br />After initial teething problems all good<br />Start menu<br />My docs sync issues<br />Offline files<br />2008 R2 and Windows 7 better together<br />Only just scratched the surface<br />Bit locker more secure for staff laptops (Ticks some BECTA boxes)<br />App locker<br />Search<br />Direct Access with Server 2008 R2<br />
  8. 8. Failures<br />3rd party software solution which should have been done through group policy<br />Applying group policy forced<br />Pushed min spec to the limit<br />
  9. 9. Top Tips<br />DON’T BE FIRST or learn from networking<br />Test login speeds and load test<br />Deploy RC but this could be a risky strategy<br />
  10. 10. “What would I do better next time”<br />Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again. (Franklin P. Jones)<br />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<br />
