More Efficient Way Of Administrating NT

By Kareem ·
I need a solution to streamline the way the Network is administrated. When it comes to updates, and loading software etc. I still have to go to each PC (70 users) and manually do this.

I have heard about software that can help me administer an NTnetwork without having to visit every user. Can you please tell me what I need get in order to cut down the workload?

PS. Please give me any info on NT login scripts too!

There are several programs you can use. Probably the most common is SMS this kind of a pain if you don't know anything about it not to mention expensive. I like Winstall personnaly you can either add the compressed program (whatever app update ectyouwant to install) that you created using winstall to the login script or e-mail out a link to the people in the office that need the program.

As for login scripts take a look at Kix32 search for it in Technet it's a NT resource Kit Utility thatworks great for scripting.

Hi Kreemo,

The Image Cast IC3 program is very usefull.
I used the qbasic4.5 program to manage the logon script. This program is in DOS environment and I prefer use it because I have Windows GUI programmers visiting my lab.
I don't want to use the same programmer applications. The problem is that it's difficult to find the qbasic4.5 program.
Search User Manager for Domain and Profile.
Import/Export folder in Winnt. I have to go
my girlfriend call me. Sorry. I will continue later.
