Labs Power Management Change

We are changing the power management policy for all Labs as follows:

  • The computers will NOT shutdown automatically after half an hour.
  • The computers will still wake up at 03:00.
  • The computers will be rebooted if not logged on at 08:00.

This is to ensure computers have time to obtain all deployed applications as quickly as possible after they are re-imaged.  This is particularly useful this year due to having a greater number of packaged and virtual applications. This will become effective within the next few days. The policy will be reverted to set computers to shut down after half an hour at evenings and weekends when term starts.

Kind Regards,

Capture Task Sequence Testing – Ongoing

We have made changes to the makeready script used in the capture task sequence. The message boxes have successfully been restored to inform of the task sequence continuing and any failures at the logon prompt. The capture task sequence is active however full testing of this is not complete and we will let you know when all tests are clear later on today.

Kind Regards,
