    A little help please .... windows/novell problems...

    I know I could post this in netware but I just wanted to know what things you allow teachers at your schools to do and not do. As administrators I am sure you can answer yes to all the questions but I would also like to know how long these tasks would take to set up.

    I am not trying to insult any technician or any teacher I am just trying to move things forward so that students can be in the best possible learning environment and to also look at reducing the mundane tasks for the technicians and stop some teachers from having something to bug me and them about.

    We are running Novell Netware and Windows Xp. So do your teachers have it and if not how long would it take to implement and would you bring in addition software or use features in Novell and Windows already provided.

    1. Access to student folders
    2. Ability to change passwords
    3. Ability to filter/unfilter sites
    4. Ability to suspend internet access
    5. Ability to right click
    6. Ability to have to create new student accounts
    7. Access a student's computer to see what they are on
    8. Ability to check CCTV footage on the computer

    We are not using Novel but are staff can do actions 3 in part (filter sites make personal white list), 4,5,7 (looking into a package for classroom PC management that includes this function).

    All members of the ICT department have read/write access (selected members of staff MAY have read access IF they can demonstrate a real need)

    2. Ability to change passwords

    General staff do not have this right at the moment, all students are able to change their own passwords and all technical staff can change passwords for entire edirectory tree.

    3. Ability to filter/unfilter sites

    Only technical staff can do this as the ACL rules required are generally way above the level of most staff here (plus mistakes have been made in the past that blocked the entire web)

    4. Ability to suspend internet access

    Suspension of Internet service can only be performed by technical staff, we do have room control software in the ICT labs but the internet blocking features of these only work with internet explorer (we use firefox which just blasts past)

    5. Ability to right click

    Can't see why you would need to remove this if your secuity policies and restrictions are set sufficiently

    6. Ability to have to create new student accounts

    Only technical staff can create/delete and modify accounts

    7. Access a student's computer to see what they are on

    Using room control software, staff can see (and lock if needed) student pc's in the ICT labs tho few take advantage of the factility. Technical staff are able to remote control any pc in the entire school via zenworks.

    8. Ability to check CCTV footage on the computer
    Not applicable here as we have no IP based CCTV systems (though i'm looking into it as a future project)
