Cheers Pete looks nice and I've said that it would be good to get that system so we shall see if I continue to fail to fix things in the holidays / have to sit in reception / leave the door wedged open with a sign saying shout loud for a signature etc... or I get a nice product like that which can phone me
Grrr! Will get ZH to have a look at the blog area - as its not brought the images though either like it used to. Thanks
I've added a couple of photos to the post. Hope it helps.
Some of your attachments are dead links. I havent read much yet, but looking good!
Cheers Pete Looks good to me so will be sending it onto our Architects to look at inclusion on our new doors rather than the boring phone on wall that isn't helpful at times when the office is empty AKA holidays etc....
You are welcome.
Thanks, i didnt know that.
IIRC you need the Windows 7 RSAT installed before you have access to "netdom".
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?
