Laptops with GPOs off the network?
We've got some mobile teaching laptops that until now (with the rest of the network) used HDGuard (like Deepfreeze) to keep their config. Since then we've removed HDGuard from all machines and make more use of GPO and mandatory profiles to lock machines down centrally to save time setting them up etc.
This works great on the network but not so sure how well it's gonna do the trick for the laptops? I was thinking of doing...
- profile, redirected start menu \ desktop items on C: drive
- domain autologon reg script seems to cache itself anyway so looks alright there
- GPOs hmmm not sure how well that'll work?
From a quick test I've done before it seems logon scripts don't work off the domain and folder redirection goes a bit wonky as well. Is there any way round this? Only other thing is going back to local users but then how can I save policies to apply to other machines - seems a lot of work otherwise :(
