We are implementing LANDesk in an environment that has PCs being re imaged weekly, sometimes Daily with different imaged depending on our clients requirements.
In trying to make this as easy and seemless as possible, and as managable for remote administrators, I am wondering if anyone can answer these questions for me. Please excuse if I sound like a beginner,,,, I am
- in other desktop management products in the past I was able to have a situation where PCs always booted to PXE first and "checked" the server for whether there was work to be done (eg an imaging task) and if there was no task boot into Windows normally. Is this possible with LANDesk?
- our machines will constantly be imaged with different Windows OS etc depending on our requirements for that day, will LANDesk always know that PC "A" is the same PC it was yesterday with a different image??
- If PCs are moved from room to room (VLAN to VLAN or Subnet to Subnet) is there a way to "group" the machines in a group based on their current IP automagically?
Might seem strange I guess but its the environment we are in... Currently we do a lot with Ghost and other products and manually manage but are hoping for more from LD.
Cheers all, hope you can help.
