Technician PC as Vista on CC3
We have a CC3 network and I know well enough that Vista cannot be run on CC3 without the Client Connect pack. We don't have this pack but I still want to use Vista on my PC which I use all the time as a technician.
Is it feasable to build a computer as vanilla Vista and add it to the domain but without smart client'ing it? I know I would not be able to access Management console but I can remote to a server for that if need be.
*I am doing an MS Vista course and need to get plenty of hands on experience.

Long time since I had a RM network but I don't see why not. have you not heard of Windows 7!

I'm sure that is possible and I don't even see any reason why you wouldn't be able to use the management console. The computer I use is vanilla windows XP but connected to the school domain, and I manage to do everything I can do from a CC3 built station.

@jsnetman Yes I have heard of Windows 7 thank you and would prefer to use that but as the school has already paid for my course I have to learn it and pass it.
So before I rebuild my machine to vanilla Vista, there shouldn't be any problem with GPO's and such?

No problems at all just put your machine in an ou that does not have any policies applied to it. Default computer OU in vanilla should not have any but I'm not sure on RM.

Brillaint thanks. Will get my machine built tomorrow and add it to the domain under an OU with no policies. Really need to get some hands on!

Ok I am having small problems. I have built the PC into Vista and added it to the domain relatively pain free so far. The thing is, now when I try to go into Control Panel there is nothing there.
I need to change the regional settings for SIMS to work but there are no icons there for me to click on.
I have added my domain user to the local admins and I am a domain admin anyway.
Any way I can resolve this? Thanks.
