Location: CLR 368
Attending: Becky Klein, Erik Kispert, Jason Kellerman, Matt Hernes, Matt Smith, Ben Acheff, Pilar Domer, & Kevin Ledbetter
Matt Smith demoed the Meeting & Greet powerpoint. Some tweeking is still needed like website URL. The PPT is very well done and informative. A tentative Meeting & Greet time frame of the week of Dec. 10th for Administrative personnel and the beginning of the Spring Semester for Academic people was put on the table.
Discussion was held on whether joining a PC to the domain breaks a user installed version of Chrome. Ben showed by looking at the target of the shortcut, the version of Chrome installation can be determined; the Enterprise copy is installed on images to point to the exe in Program Files. User installed versions like point to an exe in the user’s profile. Kevin will do further testing to determine whether the migration tool breaks user installed Chrome installs. This may need to be addressed in Discovery or day of Migration if a real issue exists.
Kevin stated copies of Dropbox should be identified during Discovery and un-installed the day of migration, then re-installed after the PC is joined to the domain. The customer needs to know their Dropbox password and this should be made clear during Discovery.
Kevin said he would send a copy of the folder restructuring message sent out to everyone affected by folder restructuring. These are individualized based on each user’s permission.
The “green bar of death” was discovered in length. Matt Hernes demoed an alternative to Windows Explorer called Explorer++ that was immune to some of issues plaguing Windows 7 explorer. Ben and Matt H. discussed setting in folder options that could be used to help resolve the issue. As of this time, there is no one thing found that completely eliminates the problem.
Matt Smith said he was working on WebHelpDesk options to assist in marking certain tasks.
Discuss was also held on Automatic Updates and how were deployed in the past and how they could be deployed once a computer is joined to the domain.
