Steady State RRS feed

  • Question

  •     I have about 15 computers that I want to get started on Microsoft Steady State and I have never used it before, so I need to know if there is a way to migrate the settings from one PC to another without having to in put the same settings on each one. I was hoping I could set one up and install it on each PC then inport the settings to each one. We are using Vista.

    Thanks .

  • You can export profile information from one computer to a file, then import - but we have found this to be problematic.  The actual export/import is easy; but more than once we have had problems with the cloned profiles.

  • Other than inputting the settings on each machine (potentially forgetting a setting here and there), the only other option I can see is to back up one pc to an image and clone it back to each of the remaining 14 machines. There are plenty of imaging tools out there, Ghost, Shadowprotect, Image for Windows etc....... Even Dell has a service, ImageDirect.
