I'm looking for suggestions on how to best manage a group of 5-10 Windows 7 PCs. My primary concern is making sure the OS and applications stay up-to-date.
My ideal solution would be to partition separate system and user volumes, then periodically push out an updated image containing all the updates. I've found instructions for splitting the OS & user volumes, but somehow I doubt this is realistic. Wouldn't the system partition need to know about the user logins? And, how to handle user installed apps?
I'd rather not have a Windows server but would consider it if necessary. What other options do I have for making this task as painless as possible?
