The door entry unit is a Ulydor made by Kalika. It's an intercom unit which sits on the system as an analogue phone. It's programmed to dial a 'Group' when someone presses the intercom button. Any person who answers the phone can then talk to the visitor and if they want to let them in press a code on the phone to unlock the door. The door release was an existing mechanism already in place.
As I said, it's an analogue unit only hence why we had to get the 20-Core Telephone Cable installed at the same time. But it's been useful having that analogue capability in place as well.
Hope it helps
I'd like to hear how you handle this kind of setup for mobile workstations. Teachers and students that would take a laptop home.
Also, what if they don't have an internet connection at home. How would they still be able to work at home with Word, Excel, etc.
Sounds a great project that you have been doing Pete
Quick one on the Door Entry stuff, is that a specifc module of that new system or is it one that is off the shelf and just patched to an analogue port on the system? I am looking for that for our digital system, Nortel made one but talking to a couple of firms that have used them it sounds a bit gash but none have suggested any alternatives.
So could do with knowing a bit about yours if possible
Part 2 is live, Parts 3 and 4a will be live by Wednesday.
You probably can. I dont see any reason why not. It would just be a read in the variable, and do a compare against another variable taking the date to disable.
CS 4 and CS 5 both run fine. The only thing is make sure you sequence for the appropriate platform - ie. the 64 bit Adobe bits on Server (we use RDS a lot for Thin Client); and 32 bit Adobe bits else where.
Ponies? Being different? Not with how many I see spread across the net.
I cared... perhaps too much...
One day you will build the dream cluster... one day.
This was still the "learn about clusters and Linux" phase.
That level of shenanigans isn't something I'm comfortable attempting yet. [I don't want to be the guy that kills ALL the computers... and the network.]
not necessarily - if u can make the head node from an f-series and then get any other node to pxe book into a diskless mode and run purely in RAM, then you can use allot of computers overnight. - you could also look at a dual boot scenario (default to windows) then have a script which runs (at say 8pm) to boot all machines into the cluster OS and another to get them back to windows (at say 4am).
How does Adobe CS5 run over this ?
Thanks allot. I was wondering if you know how i can make the script put a date of when it disabled a computer in the computers description field in AD?
would be really interested to see your notes as i would like to play with running a cluster over the summer
Ok, i'm gonna give it a test on a clean vm, any ideas when part 2 is out?
Hmmmm... OK. Im going to post up screenies of mine. Can you DM me with yours and I will take a look - or we can arrange an RDP session...
No, and no! I will cover what to do if you already have WDS already installed. It depends whether you are putting SCCM on the same server, or if you want to keep your current WDS running while you test and set up SCCM. I would go with option 2 if you can....
It always appears for the first few seconds (the bar that is), and the connection dialog disappears so quickly that I had never thought about removing it. Im not sure that you can - but Ill ask the RDP team...
A useful prompt for reminding me of something I do as a matter of course... and didnt think others would always use!
Do I get points for making you remember this issue ? ;-)
