    Why does 1 computer out of 9 behave differently :)

    There I am, working away setting up 9 new teacher classroom Win7 machines - virtualising old XP ones to run inside of them so that they can use all ancient progs that we've lost the discs for - nice job for the half-term

    Come to machine number 4 - plug a mouse into it - spends 5 mins searching for a driver (!!!!!) and then mouse doesn't work (it works fine on old XP machine and old mouse works fine on new machine)

    Well -we gcan live with that one

    Computer no 6 old virtualxp machine does a core dump when I try and attach an external USB drive to copy files from old virtual to new real one!!

    Keeps us in jobs I suppose

    In a suite of 18 identical PCs all with an identical image, I can guarantee that one will only pick up WSUS updates if it feels like it. All the others do it more or less simultaneously. I have never got to the bottom of why ICT-09 has a mind of its own.

    Maybe we need to have a name and shame thread to attempt to embarrass these rogue machines into conforming. It's as likely to work as anything else that I have tried!

    ICT-09 and ICT1-19... You've been shamed!

    I HATE YOU
    You keep falling off the domain for no reason and of course you belong to one of the teachers who does NOT rate what I do and who makes me want to wander about with my qualifications on a bit of card around my neck

    Anything with a SOCRM-NNN machine name - these are the rubbish RM P4-era pieces of junk.

    I have had similar problems with a bunch of Win 7 VMs running under HyperV, all imaged using MDT. When installing software using SCCM some work immediately, some don't.

    wander about with my qualifications
    Grade 7 History does not count as valid qualifications though!


    Some of us would be in BIG trouble if people started asking about qualifications!

    I'm not saying that qualifications are necessary or a good thing - it is just that one teacher who I KNOW feels that I am "beneath" her might just behave differently (yes, not right I know) if she knew I had been to college. TBH anything for a quiet life.
    As for age, me too (11 days and counting)
