We have found zoom to be quite reliable. We use teams for our scheduled 'calendar' meetings and zoom for adhoc short meetings. Whilst this seems odd, we have found zoom to be easier to use than teams when the personal zoom rooms are used. Yes they have their security risks (being a known password for the room) but waiting rooms and lockdowns mitigate that.
Gotowebinar is bloody awful though. We get robotic high pitched shifted audio for half our users, zoom and teams work perfectly on the same machines.
If teams had a similar personal room with password approach then we would use teams for everything, as it is it can be quite fiddly inviting 40 people including some who you only just got emails for (so aren't in your distribution lists)
74 is starting to get pricy though. Most people will still need storage and a PSU. Possibly a case. This is starting to get into NUC territory.
Dont get me wrong, I like raspPi, our XIBO clients are rasp pi running from the USB of LG panels, but the next batch of XIBO displays are actually NUCs now.
Or perhaps the admin access is logged centrally so that ADT could contact the admins if necessary. Pretty fucking obvious if the same email turns up on many systems. Maybe the principal account holder needs to auth the additional admin manually. Perhaps the system periodically emails the principal with a list of what it has done etc.
You dont have scripts or triggers for certain accounts accessing many systems? You dont have audit logs checking multiple account logins to multiple consoles? How about access audit logs for security and admin rights?
How would you spot rogue admin accounts on your systems?
ADT is a security company failing at security. Pretty shit job.
I remember my handover week. The day i was asking about licenses started along the lines of "so where are is license documentation, you know Adobe and MS renewals? What CALS are you using?
The answer was along the lines of " CALS? What are those? We just used the same key and cloned the drives".
The firm basically had zero licensing. That was a fun first week budget meeting "sign this for licensing or give me written license budget refusal."
There are usually about 40 profiles on our machines. Depends how many people have logged on the past week. Group policies do clean old ones but we found the update was stalling on some. Looking in the panther logs pointed me in the direction of some profiles failing the update. No idea on the downvotes or vitriol, it was a fix that worked on our 300 machines.
This is what I was thinking. We run internal long life certs for all sorts of internal things. My solution will be replace the ipads with android. Sure google may follow suite but its cheaper for me to scrap the ipads than replace the system. That also being said, those ipads are airgapped anyway so wont get the update.
And yet something as simple as a cascading start menu has regressed to a flat mess. Install something as simple as sql server and look at the unordered mess in server 2012+
Why they couldnt just let you put things in cascading folders is beyond me. Have multiple versions and you cant even use search to mitigate as that gets even worse.
2008 was worth price if admission for that alone.
I bought an smax from the diesel scrappage scheme in 2009. In 11 years ive had a couple of brake discs, a back box, wheel bearing and rear suspension bushes. All told less than 1k. Fuel is 45mpg and i paid 18.5k. Range is 650 from a tank. I live in cumbria near Shap where we at least have a tesla rapid charger 15 miles from me at tebay. Other than that im 40 miles from work. Electric is no go on those ranges.
