    GPO question

    Just checking I thinking the right things

    If a user logs on to the domain on thier laptop the domain policys are applied If then then go home and log on to the laptop using the cached user, the same policy is applied correct? (so if the schools proxy was set in the policy when they went home, it would still look for the schools proxy)

    Thanks

    Yes. Policy objects are cached, so the policy that was in effect at the time is applied. Obviously if you change a policy it won't take effect on that machine until it is back in school.

    Perhaps the SMT were thinking about the laptop when it is connected to the school network from home?

    GPO cannot be updated without the laptop talking to its home server.

    Tell SMT that you'll send said machine on a psychic course right away to remedy this defect

    I'm not sure the chip will be compatible with Vista though... Crystal Ball technology is notoriously unstable!

    It has to be activated, in a similar way to Windows Product Activation. Must have the piece of paper from the course though, to be licensed.

    Oh and Vista compatibility is practically nil, until you buy Crystal Ball Deluxe Edition, which will install but not run.

    I would just go for it, the next service pack tries to detect whether you're using AMD TeaLeaves but is known to be very unstable even so.

    (I've been rehearsing a youth theatre all day, can you tell?!)
