This is the perfect use case for Microsoft Intune. While it is primarily known as an MDM solution, it also has PC management capabilities as well, such as app deployment and patch management. It's also completely cloud-based and is licensed on a per-device per-month basis, so it can scale as you grow. If you're already managing internal devices with System ...

Remember that you are not deleting a computer but a computer account Just like deleting a user doesnt eject then from the building, deleting the computer account will just mean the computer can no longer access the domain. Domain logins will fail because the domain controller won't talk to it. Computers need those accounts, with the right password, to ...

If all they have is a small domain, migrate it into your existing domain. Microsoft provides a tool just for this purpose, the appropriately named Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT). Read more about it here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Cc974332(v=WS.10).aspx

Well, there is a tool called Adaxes. With its help you can create a WebUI that can give access to AD. So for your scenario you can just customize the WebUI to show a form with the parameters that need to be entered and after a student puts his/her data in, the account is automatically created. The nice thing about Adaxes is that you can put really a lot ...

Create a WMI filter for the GPO: SELECT * FROM WIN32_OperatingSystem where ProductType="1"

Off the top of my head, here are three different ways to do it: You can create an OU for the workstations, move the computer accounts for the workstations to this OU and link the GPO to this OU. You can use Security Filtering to apply the GPO only to your selected workstations. As Greg stated in his answer, you can use a WMI filter to apply it only to ...

You can increase the cached logon count. By default it is set to 10 and the maximum value is 50 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon\ ValueName: CachedLogonsCount Data Type: REG_SZ Values: 0 - 50 You will still need to logon once per account though. Alternatively you can deploy a RODC to the site but it has an ...

So, I have resolved this after coming to so many blanks. It turns out that there was an external change that I was not aware of - the house move coincided with a new internet connection and thus a new router. The new router seems to be providing IPv6 details via DHCP even though IPv6 is disabled in its DHCP settings. Even though each and every server was ...

The query is a simple LDAP-Query, so you can use the negation operator: just place a ! in front of the item, and the outcome will be negated. So in your case: (&(objectCategory=computer)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)) I tested this query in my AD. Without the exclemation mark, i get only 4 computer accounts which are disabled. With ...

It sounds like your DNS configuration is the problem. On the DC use the DC's actual ip address as the preferred DNS server and use 127.0.0.1 as the secondary DNS server. On the client use the DC's actual ip address as the primary DNS server and leave the secondary DNS server blank.

Unfortunately all of the migration tools and API's require the source domain to be online to add sidHistory, so you could add the SID for user1 from the previous domain to the new account. But I think it is possible to edit sidHistory if you add a Samba4 domain controller to the domain. ...

I assume your domain isn't terribly large. WHat you really need to get up and running after Domain Services is DHCP. Then DNS. Make sure they're both running. The re-join workstations to the domain. 'Active directory' isn't a location, your domain is. You should be looking for your domain.
