    You can make it into a DVD that includes the Win2k3 sp1 and WinXP sp2 cd files. Saves all the disk swapping, but obviously needs severs with dvd-rom drives.

    Re: Where Can I Get It

    Has anybody installed it yet and had a play? I was speaking to an MS guy at BETT on Wed and he said it was a great tool. But he didn't think it did the share/control screens thing which it talked about in the pdf. Anybody shed any light on that?

    Re: Where Can I Get It

    For those not wanting to pay for WinISO/Nero/UltraISO/whatever:
    or just use a cheapo P133 linux TS client as a workstation 8O

    convert to a valid ISO9660 like this:

    Code:
    dd if=./MSLNM.iso of=./MSLNM-9660.iso bs=1024 skip=300
    this also converts nero nrg files to iso
    and burn with cdrecord/K3b/etc

    Re: Where Can I Get It

    Hi Guy's

    I will make a few copies available tomorrow SATURDAY at our stand E74 ask for Geoff, I will be doing the breifing for LNM.

    LNM was developed for Microsoft by ITWORX to assist in the deployment of 2003 Networks for the Saudi Ministry of Education (and others).

    It will automatically build a 2003 AD Network specifically tailored to Schools requirements instead of the proverbial Consoto Coffee Co model we all know so well, from bare metal to working system in under an hour.

    Now most of you will already know how to do this but, can you deploy the server, configure RIS and Terminal Server (Application Mode), develop a set of working policies and role out your first workstation in under an hour.

    I don't think so!

    This is a set of very clever sif files, PE routines, VB and pearl scripts that transform the usual bog standard 2k3Server into a usable school system very quickly.

    Most Geeks will be happy to extract, dis-assemble, reverse engineer and suck all the good routines out of LNM and pass them off as their own to impress their bosses, however there will be many less experienced school network admins who will find great comfort in having LNM give them a jump start in setting up a very slick native Win 2k3 system without handing over loads of cash to the likes of RM, Viglen, CSE and others.

    LNM is the Zenworks of Windows, if it had been around five years ago most school admins would have been a lot more familiar with AD by now!

    Don't knock this application, it's free it's well thought through and the only thing that needs sorting quickly is the password reset process that expects a kid to remember a seven character randomly generated strong password during the long walk back from IT to the class room!

    It has been well received by most school techies, as a training tool to excercise deployment techniques and the end result is good enough for most schools to get started with the native OS and kick away that crutch (RM and others) that they have become dependent on because they lacked the confidence to go native.

    As a VAR we are using the kit ourselves (slightly modified) to deploy systems for our clients and the time saved up front is then used to deploy back end services such as sharepoint.

    If you can't get there Saturday and are still desperate to see what LNM has to offer I will post a download link here next week once we have had a chance to move into our new premises, the old place was flattened by the Buncefield fiasco and we have been working out of peoples living rooms for nearly a month.


    Geoff

    no we wont think most geeks are honest and say they used lnm

    we are not i think most of us will found it to be a good idea

    M$ expect you to use RDP and the request support services.

    If you want more look at NetSupport Manager or something like that.

    Will this support R2 when it's available and the new functionality such as allowed file types which could be integrated into the quote setting area?
