Removing domain from a primary school enviroment.
Hi, I need a little advise on if this will work or not. I am thinking of removing the domain aspects of our system for curriculum and using alternative software. This would allow us to use cheaper versions of windows and also remove a aspect that does not really work 100% for children in a Primary School. This is an initial idea at the moement but I have been considering making all laptops encrypted with an entry level password to start the machine up. I was then thinking of making the laptops auto-login so that nobody needs another password. (this could still be done with a laptop connected to the domain to allow me to set permissions etc) I was then thinking of making windows backup run automatically for each laptop during a time of day when the laptops will not be in use and then backing up to one masive NAS or using Sync back to the server. I could use WPKG to manage software.
What does everyone think about this scenario ? Is it more trouble than its worth ?
This idea has come about because teachers would like to take laptops offsite and I am worried about data security. Any thoughts are welcomed
