4. What’s in our soup?

We’re predominately a Windows XP shop, we do have a large (and growing) number of Mac users we’re crazy and went from AD to Zenworks We manage our XP workstations with Novell Zenworks 7 along with Symantec AV 10We’re predominately a Windows XP shop, we do have a large (and growing) number of Mac users we’re crazy and went from AD to Zenworks We manage our XP workstations with Novell Zenworks 7 along with Symantec AV 10

10. Visual Aid Time!

C Slide The Conventional approach is a single image you have your deployed image, which is one huge file that consists of the OS, model specific drivers, windows updates, enterprise software, the HAL and and possibly even departmental specific tweaks. You don’t have just one of these, you have many. At SLU we had at least one for each department and one for each computer type. all in various states of disarrayC Slide The Conventional approach is a single image you have your deployed image, which is one huge file that consists of the OS, model specific drivers, windows updates, enterprise software, the HAL and and possibly even departmental specific tweaks.

11. Mac not MAC

started with a Mac Boot Camp This whole project was started by Macs at SLU We were trying to figure out how image them using Boot Camp and realized that our existing strategy was not effective. So we had to rethink itThis whole project was started by Macs at SLU We were trying to figure out how image them using Boot Camp and realized that our existing strategy was not effective.

12. Look at Components

analyze separate structure analyze what goes inside separate out those buckets and structure them to be more flexable and consistentanalyze what goes inside separate out those buckets and structure them to be more flexable and consistent

13. Modular Structure

Base drivers windows agetns HAL optional departmental image all make up deployedBase drivers windows agetns HAL optional departmental image all make up deployed

14. Base Image

Operating System ? J Slide Base is the first image and the most important it is the sysprep ready image of a configured OS exoskelton install, configure, sysprep and create imageJ Slide Base is the first image and the most important it is the sysprep ready image of a configured OS exoskelton install, configure, sysprep and create image

15. Model Specific Drivers

One image for each Separate Ready before new models are on-site One image for each modelSeparate, doesn't effect other models in production when updatingCan be ready before new models are on-siteOne image for each modelSeparate, doesn't effect other models in production when updatingCan be ready before new models are on-site

16. Model Specific Drivers

18. Enterprise software

required software image is organized by each app placed on target OS during mini-setup, scripts run to install silently C Slide required agents/software for the enterpriseplaced in known location on target OSduring mini-setup, scripts run to install silentlyC Slide required agents/software for the enterpriseplaced in known location on target OSduring mini-setup, scripts run to install silently

19. HAL

What kind? Single vs multi ACPI? What kind of processorSingle vs multi (core processor)ACPI or not?What kind of processorSingle vs multi (core processor)ACPI or not?
