Classrooms converted to Active Directory

What does that mean?

There are only a few student computer labs on campus that are connected to Active Directory (AD) S501 and NB233 in 2012.  IT Services goal is to have all computer labs converted by Fall 2013. AD is already on all the lecture room instructor PCs and that means instructors have to log into the computers. Once the computer labs are converted, students will also have to log into the computers. 

Now on Active Directory and Windows 7 Operating System:

Lecture Room Reimaging to Active Directory

Lecture classrooms were reimaged to Active Directory with Windows7, Office2010, and DeepFreeze.  This means that instructors will have to log into these computers using their Active Directory login credentials (i.e., jgdoe342) for Fall classes.  An advantage is that the instructor will have access to their u-drive in the classroom.  There will no longer be a MyDocuments on these computers.  DeepFreeze will return the classroom computer to it’s original configuration when the PC is restarted.  That way, instructors should see exactly the same computer configuration every time they walk into a classroom.

Software that will not run on Windows 7 PCs

We’ve done a quick inventory of software running on CFCC’s office (admin) computers. The software listed below is not Windows 7 compliant. This means when the computers are reimaged with Windows 7 over the summer, this software will not be put back on the computers. Please take a look at the list. You may need to purchase an upgrade to your software.  Contact the helpdesk if you need an upgrade quote.
