    I think I need some more days!!

    • Build about 75 workstations onto the CC4 network
    • Make restore images of about 100 workstations
    • Build various packages
    • Reset user passwords
    • Update the inventory
    • Various other tasks that I've forgotten

    Loads left to do to be honest! Although I went home on Friday last thinking all was sorted but as per usually, the teachers arrive on site after x amount of weeks off and expect you to do another x amount of weeks work 72hours before the start of term. Typical!

    Eg: We asked for their laptops to be handed in during the summer break for updates and if they couldn;t get them to us before, then they should get them to us during the first few weeks of the hols otherwise if they leave til last minute, they will have to leave the lappies with us and we'll do them as soon as. You know what's coming next don't you!?!?! Today/yesterday, here's my laptop can I come and get it in half an hour etc etc etc. YES, I will drop everything I'm doing because you are ready to let me serve you oh great one(s)!

    'effin' joke!

    About 15 staff laptops, not handed in in July, left to rebuild.
    Various bits of testing that applications have installed correctly.
    About 100 staff pen drives to encrypt.

    Oh and staff came back yesterday, pupils today!

    (yes you guessed it Printers + Windows 7 = chaos)

    As well as get some PCs imaged (I think were down to about 30 to go now)
    Finish updates for the MIS
    Tidy the entire building (as ive got heaps of stuff in every possible space at present as its been a mega summer schedule!)
    Create all the new users (staff included)
    Sleep and rest for the chaos on Monday - IE Entire new Network, All reset passwords for every child in the place etc

    what have we left to do, well with 0 days left, (kids return tomorrow) we have 35 computers to unbox, 30 set up but not yet built. 2 projectors/smartboards to go on a wall and err updates to roll out.

    Is it our fault, no cos building works and failed deliveries kept us behind.

    Was back today - kids tomorrow - thought I would have time to check everything......but it turns out the no member of staff could access their docs over the summer (offline file synchronisation) since we upgraded to Server2008R2. (any ideas, anyone?)
    And I tried to install some programs but the installer kept telling me that I was installing Starting French - which I wasn't - and told me I couldnt access the program. This happened on three different machines!
    AND I have to delete the old year 8 email addys (My boss said he'd done it) and the inventory - as well as getting rid of some kit which was SUPPOSED to go in the summer.
    That's just one school. Tomorrow I go to the training day at the other one - what's the betting that similar things happen

    Still on the to do list:

    Create a master and image 20 pupil laptops. Create a master and image 22 desktops, and replace in classrooms and ICT suite. Upgrade the head's computer to Windows 7.


    Issues still to be resolved:

    Switches not seeing the network, wireless access points disconnected or reverted to defaults, so will need to reset.

    Training day today but pupils back tomorrow - is it half-term yet?

    There are so many bits and pieces that go forgotten or unnoticed over the summer. Mainly non-functioning equipment, which I didn't have the time to go around and check.
