Vanilla Network from Scratch
OK I'm thinking of building our school network again from scratch and I'm looking for pointers on where to start for a vanilla network.
What tools would be good to have ?
Should we engage some consultants to help ?
Anyone got a plan of how to proceed ?
The backend side I'm fairly confident with, Server 2008/12, VMWare etc should be no issue, but we need tools to build computers, lock them down, deploy software etc, etc. I know most of this stuff is built into Windows but 'built in' MS stuff is sometimes not the best way to go.
Basically I'm at the very first stages of planning this and so I'd be grateful for any useful pointers here.
