Windows Steadystate/file protection
Hi, I'm looking atm at using a file protection agent on our fat clients. Mainly we've been looking at Windows Steadystate, really just after any advice from people with experience here....
Some things that I've been pondering about:
If we enable disc protectioen then create an image and distribute to an entire room... the disc protection will surely trap these machines in a loop, won't it? We use sysprep, is there any way to make it work sensibly with an image without having to enable it on each machine after the oobe?
Making changes to machines/updates; I know you can set a time where the disc protection is disabled but what if we want to make changes to machines at another time and don't want to have to faff about with steadystate on each machine. Is there a way of managing over network or another programme that will do it?
So yeh, anyone with experience who can point me in the right direction... may be able to spend some money on software if it's not too much and is actually worth it.
Or is it just not worth it?
(the fat clients are currently running XP... may be 7 in the future and are all on the same domain.)
