Forced down the 64bit route...any tips or gotchas to look out for?
Having been told to purchase the Adobe Master Collection CS6 as it was a requirement for teaching IT and Art we've now of course discovered that several of the applications no longer run on 32bit Windows 7.
We've been running 32bit Windows 7 for over a year now and everything is bedded in well, full lock-down policies for students via GPO, DC's are all running Windows Server 2008 R2.
We are using WDS to roll out Windows 7 to our existing XP estate and I have an apprentice on this job full time and its running smoothly.
I am about to start on a standard "image" for a base 64bit install and wondered what things I should be looking out for?
1. Should I create a new WMI filter in Group Policy Management and then duplicate all my policies so I can test each one for compatibility with 64bit or should all the general polices such as lock-down, redirecting desktops and start-menu, setting IE proxy, setting power management, software restiction, wsus settings ALL just work?
2. I've read a bit about printer driver support being a pain. Our current print server is only running Server 2003 R2 service pack 2 - it's also our WSUS server....
Any help appreciated...
