    Re: Admin and Curriculum networks seperate?

    Good point Declan.

    I can't tell you the amount of times a certain member of staff has sent me pieces of paper declaring that "the computers in [whatever room] don't work" (when all that's wrong is an errant mouse on ONE machine) but who then leave their admin system unlocked ALL DAY!

    Or there are the staff members who allow sixth formers to log in to the admin systems and take the register (of course letting them surf and stuff while they do it).

    And oh yes- last week one told me that he had forgotten his password so couldn't unlock the machine; a helpful student told him, "no problem- I'll log in with [enter staff member's name here] and you can use lesson monitor through their account"!

    Help!

    Paul :-P

    I have set the policy to lock the computer when the screensaver comes on. I set it for 5 minutes at first. Oh the complaints!

    Ordinarily I would laugh, but I've had the exact same thing. When told "you can just to windows + L" the reply came, "but I've got so much stuff to do when I'm leaving the office". Ack.

    It wouldn't be so bad, but there's a bug in the group policy setting in XP SP1 which sometimes causes it to fail.

    Re: Admin and Curriculum networks seperate?

    we have ours separate wth a trust between them so teachers can access sims from their laptops. A 3rd party company manages the technical side of the admin network & sims. We suffer from the problems of having long established networks. c. 12 years and network managers who dont see eye to eye on some things lol.

    i'm of the opinion that its fine by me. I dont need even more work for no more money. cant trust teachers to be sensibly security conscious. teachers frequently let kids use their laptops with the teacher logged in and in extreme circumstances have been known to tell kids their password. doh!
