Ok, so - some of you have tried to put this in place and have not had much luck with it. I use this one a lot, as it saves additional software - and it is just nice to have everything all in one place.
How to do it properly then...
1 Create a NEW GPO... yes I said new. Don't go adding this to exisitng ones as when you want to change the time for different machines - you will be stuffed (well you could use item level targetting -but thats a bit out of the reach of this
Related to the EuroGamer Expo blog, we are running an education related Video Games event at Magna in Sheffield next year called "Games Britannia" celebrating the UKs massive involvement in Video Games Industry. The event has been organised in response to the Nesta report and is part of Rotherham Schools Children's festival.

My Saturday was spent attending the Eurogamer Expo at Earl's Court, London. This trade show was a chance for members of the public and video games industry to show off their future releases and next-gen technology. And it is brimming with technology.
One of the most popular stands was the OnLive service. Recently launched in the UK, the service jumps aboard the cloud bandwagon and tries to offer gamers the chance to stream titles online using a PC or a micro-console. This small box

Very soon my country will be using Fronter's VLE. Fronter VLE is asking me as a new client to put up a help desk for all stakeholders (administrators, teachers, parents and students). Does anyone have any experiences to share? What should be included? What is required and what are the implications of setting up a help desk? What are the type of most common questions and who can best answer them (technicians, teachers...?)

One of my Summer tasks has been to get SIMS migrated from our ageing server onto a new Server. I've gone down the route of hosting it on a virtual machine based on a XenServer Host. First impressions are all good so far.
In all the planning of this and arranging for Capita to do the migration, you suddenly realise how many other systems feed off your SIMS database and these too need either migration or re-configuring. These include simple things like the Frog SIMS Extractor right
So, as you will have gathered from my recent blog posts... there is some serious systems change happening at my place!
Quite simply put - without SCCM and Windows Thin PC, there is no way I could have got it done.
THat being said... there were a few times I was pulling may hair out with it! So, this post is a heads up on what might go wrong... and in no particular order...

Lifecycle Management Developing a process
Whether you are using ITIL, FITS or other ideology / tools to help you develop a support service, you will find that you will borrow, adapt, use, tweak, refine and make wholesale use of a plethora of pre-existing examples of procedures. It is a simple fact of life that sharing and comparing procedures is more efficient than re-inventing the wheel in isolation.
However, you will find that there will be occasions
Couldnt quite work out what to call this blog post - as it ties so many different areas in together.
As Ive written about before - Ive been busy doing a mass upgrade and virtualisation project at my new place. First step was getting the HyperV hosts all set up. That was a breeze, as was the SAN - all bar a bit of waiting whilst it all initialised.
Once that was done, it was time to get the roles onto each of the nice new HyperV Clients. An SQL cluster, a pair of SCCM
