    Netbook Carts

    We are deploying many carts of netbooks and pulling out most labs. How do others manage their netbook carts? I am thinking it will be a nightmare to manage and the best solution would be to place an ethernet switch in the cart with a connection to each netbook and one connection going external to be plugged into a network drop overnight. This way we can wake on lan and perform updates and installations in the off hours.

    It may not be what you're after, but I just keep them on a wireless connection and do all our maintenance work on them over Christmas and Summer. Build a new image with updates etc, roll it out automatically to them all over a wired connection and bung 'em back in the trolly.

    You could deploy them automatically using something like Fog or WDS.

    I've seen it done elsewhere and it seems to work well for them.
