    Didn't know CC4 supported Windows 7.

    serious question?

    what does CC4 give you that you can't do with vanilla?

    I'm just curious because the last time a messed with RM was when I was in primary school,./

    It's supported from SR2.

    CC4 doesn't really offer anything that you cannot do on Vanilla if you're happy to spend time putting together different programs and scripts on a Vanilla network.

    We're going to CC4 from CC3 and building the school workstations to XP. So far it's all going smooth .

    cc3-cc4

    We're in the middle of the process.
    Both servers are now cc4 commisioned, student data and other files are across.

    Just a massive dhcp and dns issue now.

    We run two domains in school, a vanilla for admin, and cc3 (previously) for the students.
    One admin server, and two rm servers.
    The admin is the forest root, which runs dhcp and dns.

    The technician tells us that the cc4 server1 has to be the forest root, so swapped dhcp and dns responsiblities over.
    Now we get massive network delay on the admin network, and rm machines won't get ip's...........

    why not save your self some money and go vanilla on both, and you can do things how you want then?

    Based on that post, how can you say he'll save money by going vanilla? Do you know how many working hours he has to setup and manage the network? Do you know whether he's confident enough to setup and manage a Vanilla network? You've seen 'RM' and jumped to conclusions that money can be saved and Vanilla is better. An all too common, and unhelpful, response in RM threads on here.

    it was based on the restriction that this kind of system imposes "it has to be boss" i.e. the cc4 server has to be the forest root, which I don't think your going to solve by swapping the DHCP/DNS services over the forest root is a completely different concept, which means re-install.

    btw the "go vanilla was a joke" lighten up

    This is not hard to sort out each domain keeps its DNS rolls just DHCP will sit on one domain with reservations set for the least amount of workstations guessing this would be the admin network and the main scope setup for the curric doman. just might take a while to eneter all the mac address but it works well

    I dont look after the network anymore, we have a very good techie team who will be migrating us to a vanilla M$ network next year. Im glad it is there job, but trust that they will do it well and with less issues than RM caused!
    Ah nothing better than misplaced trust...
