Actually you are wrong if you look into it the new Surface RT 2 can now be joined to a domain and gives you a login screen. You can even customise what apps people get through GP! I know we have 2!
Danp mentioned earlier. Sorry for any confusion.
We both seem to have purchased some but I was expecting mine to be able to join the domain.
Edit : I cant find anything that states Surface 2 can join a domain. It is still running RT.
@alexbillbridgnorth - Are you referring to workplace join?
No definitely domain join they are on our AD as computers!! I will try to find the thread on the internet for you! :)
Ah my bad couldn't find anything either! Went and checked the deputy's surface and it's a surface pro that's how we did it. Sorry didn't know I'm amazed we had the money for 2 pro's! Noone tells me nothing... :(
with 8.1 you can use work folders if you have 2012 r2 server(s)
Do we think that these tablets with keyboards are the way to go? Are there tablets which we can add to our domain, and have group policy security applied? We currently use desktops in our classrooms for teachers, would these also work? Do any tablets/laptops come with LAN or VGA ports?
Are users still able to log in at home, so use the tablet as a standalone?
I've been given the go ahead to buy a device to test but I want to make sure I get the right one. If there is one with a VGA or LAN connection that would be ideal.
Very interesting? What medium did you use to install 8.1 Pro? Do you think you could get it to work with an imaging solution to streamline rollout to a lot of devices?
Has anyone managed to build these to a CC4 network? I tried to smart client it and didn't get very far. I have a Surface Pro.
