    Microsoft Learning Network Manager 2005

    Found this on another newsgroup, any one sen it yet?

    Microsoft Learning Network Manager (LNM)is an amazing tool that greatly
    simplifies administration of Windows 2003 and can be more valuable to a
    School IT Administrator than an extensive and expensive training program
    for him or her.

    With LNM, a School IT Admin can do such things as set up
    all users on Windows 2003 in a matter of minutes rather than spend
    sometimes a week or more entering hundreds or thousands of user names.

    LNM is designed to hugely simplify and speed up every network
    administration task on Windows 2003. It is especially useful to
    inexperienced School IT Administrators enabling them to understand and
    operate a Windows network as easily as a highly trained and experienced
    Windows Network Administrator.

    LNM completely automates server installation and configuration, it also
    deploys the workstation OS and applications, configures users profiles
    and restrictions, controls internet access and when configured with
    appropriate hardware resources, also provides Terminal Services access
    for as many users as the hardware can support.

    LNM can be used to deploy Server 2003 and establish new domains, or will
    easily integrate into existing native deployments.

    LNM will be demonstrated by our specialist Microsoft Education Teams at
    BETT who will be available to help you with any questions, installation
    or other issues to make Windows 2003 work harder for your school.

    Just saw that today as well, and read the PDF seems interesting, so will ensure that I visit them at BETT and see about it.

    Hummm looks good. If it does what it says on the tin, I can see alot of worried faces at some "well known" education companys.

    Would be good to see a demo of some description or at least some screen shots.

    I was looking to remove Ranger this year and just having Net Support for Schools on for the staff to use, but if this is coming out soon and looks useful then I may defer my plans and save a lot of cash

    Re: Microsoft Learning Network Manager 2005

    Does it do import of users from a csv file?

    Does it do print quotas?

    How will it integrate into already networks that have already been set up?

    There's a few to keep you going.

    Who on earth sets up an entire years worth of new users MANUALLY ffs! Thats what the command line is for! Do a dump of new intake from SIMS into a CSV file and use DSADD or CSVDE or similar to create the users and job is done in ten minutes, seven of which it takes to write the fricking script!

    Otherwise, looks interesting. I'll definately give it a spin on Monday.
