|USB storage devices of any type are currently prohibited. EFS is easily cracked using any number of publicly available rainbow tables and we don't have BitLocker (Windows 7 Professional and Windows Server 2008 "R1")--though I fail to see how it would be useful as the only people that would have a need for it are our mobile users and they already have all of their data and there is nothing we can do about that security risk with the tools we have available.|
As it stands now, I've slimmed down my user profile to 10.4GB by resizing virtual disks and getting rid of unnessary files. I've opted to try the roaming profile.
My workstation is downloading at around 512Kb/s and is currently unaware of the changes I've made on my notebook while in the server room. I connected my notebook directly to a core switch and had my profile up in a little over 30 seconds. Started the login on my workstatoin at 2pm on Friday the 27th. It is now after 7pm on Saturday the 28th and I just stopped by work--still loggin in.
Roaming profile isn't working anyway on my notebook because the user profile service is looking for the server copy of my profile. I need to see what's going on with this--I suspect Offline files has been disabled. It's been ages since I've touch our group policies.
Any suggestions related to the profile issue are welcome.
