Welcome to IWETHEY!

New That is bullshit.
Roaming Profiles in M$ == Zen Profiles in Novell.

Since you are an education account you should be able to get ZEN for pennies.

Go get ZEN and be happy.

Profiles DON'T have to even *BE* created either. When a Student logs in, you can force a default profile and personalize it with a "homedir" which all setting and junk are kept rather than c:\\Docs-n-settings\\blah\\blah\\blah

Or another way is to keep all per user stuffs (docs and IE cache and firefox cache etc), in a HOMEDIR and actually use roaming profiles period. Many forced settings are easy to accomplish with ZEN (or NAL as it was called).

NAL is not a bear to tangle with, once you "get" its functionality you can rollout whole labs without even having a tech be there. Just have the local College Work Study restart the computers. *IF* you have PXE capable and/or setup... golden are you.

PXE allows you to "maintain" machines without tech interaction.

MUCH MUCH MUCH has to be done to statr with, but remember this, NAL/ZEN builds upon what you already have existing. It can change/mold your setup if you grok it.

New Figured as much.
Thanks, guys. Was wondering what kind of total mess I was getting myself into; not that it really matters since we're migrating to LDAP pretty soon anyways.

New They'll screw that up as well.

New No no no no no
If the current people couldn't get their system set up right, it's because the system sucked. They just need to buy a new one and learn how to use that.

New You guys are really making me feel good about my new job. :P
New No... you just wait until it hits you.
I know. remember, I used to have a job @ a CC.

Just wait, when the CAD (Not Computer Aided Drafting ... NOOOOO) Computer Applications Department decides it wants to do something that needlessly compromises you department's (IT) ability to quell the burning fires, buying a outside of budget (or Granted) package that requires ADS, you just love it. Trust me. It *IS* going to happen.

They won't accept a NO, that would be invading the Fiefdom(sp?) they have there.

But, you guys get to pick up the pieces, trying to make it work.

New I thought you wanted the challenge?

New You're supposed to let me get disillusioned myself. :D
New Oh, I'm doing that
I may offer assistance, but you're the one who has to do the disillusioning. :-P

Cheers,
Ben
