Domain Name and Passwords should be keyboard agnostic (ie: be the same on azerty/querty )
- Domain Example: Contoso.net
- Password Example: Topsecret
The lab layout should be set as the background image, like in the screenshot
The lab should contain the lab credentials set with bginfo
The saved parameters file and the windows background should be saved to a folder called c:\bginfo
Create login script with saved bginfo parameters file to run as login script.
The machine should allow you to shutdown/ restart from the ctrl-alt-del box
The welcome page should be disabled
System restore should be disabled
The shutdown event tracker should be disabled
password complexity should be disabled
Changing the computer account password should be disabled.
Screensaver should be disabled
Showing icons on the desktop should be disabled (you didn't spend all this time on building backgrounds to have them cluttered with icons)
All passwords should be configured to not expire
Vm's should be running on the latest service pack
Your last login should be with the user that the people will need in the lab so that it is prefilled when pressing ctrl-alt-del
the c:\drive should contain a folder called buildguide and an rtf file with the steps taken to create the vm, this way you can see what preparative action has been taken to make the labs work.
So I created my lab environment in visio and saved the different visio's as bmp's
And set a lot of the above options using a gpo, I backupped the gpo and saved it. The gpo can be found here:http://scug.be/files/folders/sccm/default.aspx
And you could obviously import it back on any domain controller using gpmc.
