Getting external help; Win AD/GPO
I have been having real problems this last year. Gpo policies not enforcing and sometimes even reverting to the old setting. Replication does not seem to be consistent. Romaing profiles are causing issues and the backup transfer speed has got so slow, we are well into the next day before the job ends.
I still have all my usual jobs to do, and get very little time to spend fixing these things, which have a knokk-on effect of adding to my never-ending list of jobs.
I could do with contracting someone in with specific tasks to perform. ie; please get group policy stable and cosistent.
Has anyone found a reliable contractor that doesn't cost the earth,vast experience that enjoys these sorts of challenges? I would prefer to pay for the fix, than the day rate, although i imagine that is going to be difficult.
I have gone past the point of thinking i can solve this myself, i have devoted many hours into thrying fixes, and most of that time was interupted by students needing password changes, classes needing new toners, or staff wanting youtube clips downloaded... I hate schools at the moment!:mad:
