    Input various credentials via script (non-domain laptops)

    Currently our staff laptops are non-domain.

    When i've imaged one ready for a member of staff, they have to come in and i have to set up outlook with their exchange account details, i have to get them to put in their web proxy credentials (and tick 'remember') and i have to get them to put in their domain password as the password on the machine so that my scripts for mapping drives can authenticate with the server properly.


    What i want to know is, can i write/obtain a script that will present a text box and use the credentials to complete the above tasks?
    Or is that too much?

    Is there a better way? (i'm guessing someone's going to say put them on the domain)

    1. Well for Outlook, why dont you use OA?
    Access via HTTPS/RPC

    I could look into it.
    How does the profile setup differ? Do i pre-configure the connection details and it just prompts them for logon details when they open it?

    1. Depends on what version of Exch and Outlook your using?
    2. If 2007/2010 (exch and Out) then all this is done for you bu Autodiscover, you just need to make sure you implment this.

    Well, you can still do this, but it's not automatic, in terms of configuring the profile, however, all the user has to do is input their credentials when Outlook is opened.

    How can I configure RPC over HTTP/S on Exchange 2003 (single server scenario)?

    right i've started looking into this, we use isa2006 to publish our portal and owa so looks like it might be a little more complicated that the instuctions you posted.
    I'll keep looking at it while i also investigate other avenues
