leave a comment »

Elevated the B lab server to the highest functional level, Windows Server 2003. It said it would replicate this out to the entire domain, but I didn’t see the other server’s light do much and it cranks a lot when ANY thing happens. Hmmm. But I looked at it and sure enough it IS elelvated, too.

Found how to require Automatic Updates even if a local Administrator tries to override. Setup a GPO I called Require Automatic Updates and set as shown:

Man, these PC start slow now that roaming profiles and folder redirection is in place. They sit at the “Establishing network connections” prompt for over a minute. Tried removing the “Turn off fast logon” GPO, but it’s still pokey.
