RM CC3 - Buying non RM machines
I'm looking at buying some new machines (non RM) and then building them for use on the RM CC3 network we have.
Obviously RM CC3 uses XP Pro... So what suggestions are there regarding the purchasing of the machines. If I purchase a machine, do they have to have XP Pro and/or Vista Business on them?
I'm a bit stuck in regards to the downgrade... The CC3 Licence obv. doesn't include XP Pro, but then, I don't think I can purchase XP Pro Licenses anymore can I?
Am I stuck with purchasing from RM?
Re: RM CC3 - Buying non RM machines
You will need to purchase PCs with Vista Business with a downgrade to licence to Windows XP. Many suppliers still do this, including RM. You can connect Vista Business stations to CC3, providing you have the Client Connect Pack but they will not be managed clients (ie no application deployment, etc.).
