    Know the feeling at my last school I was in a room with no windows! I felt like a mushroom kept in the dark and fed on sh1t.

    We're about to convert toilets. Currently my techies work in the server room, which ends up with everybody and his mate walking in to for various reasons. I dont like people that close to MY servers! :twisted:
    I'm fortunate enough to have my own cupboard. Out of interest how many NMs / SMs work in the same location as their techies. Our SMT have said i MUST have my own office, for various things such as Performance Management, etc..... I'd prefer to work with them, at least then I could demand tea! I know this is off the original topic which started a year ago, but what the hey. I didnt start it! It was Mr_T. Craaazy Foool!

    Re: Microsoft Learning Network Manager

    We have tried it ... and the most recent build (available at codeplex) is stable and makes changes about pre-configured profiles ... this is due to problems with the profiles working with W2K, XP and Vista.

    To get a domain up and running and ready to deploy multiple machines is about 2 days but I have yet to try it again after putting SP2 on ... so I am not sure what changes would need to be tweaked due to the integration of WDS.

    I will pose the question on codeplex actually as I want a few of my guys to look at it again to help understand some principles in prep for MCP stuff.

    @Tony

    is it quicker to use LNM that set up a domain from scratch?

    Re: Microsoft Learning Network Manager

    You can set up a domain in 2 days to be honest, but you need to plan exactly what groups and everything beforehand ...

    If you have very little experience of setting domains up it is quick to get *something* ready ... but for most of us we would spend the next few weeks tweaking things, setting up additional GPOs and even makign custom ADM templates ...

    If someone wants to get a domain running quickly to help understand how it all works then it is good. If someone needs to set up many domains with a similar structure it is good. If someone wants to set up a domain and give staff some admin control of a similar fashion to CC3 or Ranger (not as extensive admittedly) then it is handy.

    Personally I doubt we would use it for the full domain, but we might for testing environments or working with small groups of students interested in the ideas behind MS networks.
