    Windows 7/XP Mixing

    How are you going about deployment of the network?

    Are you using Roaming or Local Profiles?

    Profiles are pretty easy, depending on the type used. Super mandatory profiles have a specific fix. Otherwise, go for redirection and well locked down PCs instead.

    Lots of testing is key. You may find some old scripts don't work. Printers are fun - your print server will need to host 64 and 32 bit drivers if you want mixed architecture.

    WMI filters make GP management simple though.
