                                           Workstation Setup – 2002-2003
                 Setup procedures for the Dell OptiPlex GX260 Windows 2000 Professional workstations
                            This version of this document was created on October 17, 2002

Preparation:
Software: Gather any local software which will be installed on the computers. (e.g. All the Right Type, Cross
Country Canada, World Book, etc.) Make it available for network installation from Tech logon.
Printers: Decide which printer drivers will be needed on the computers. Make a list of which drivers are required for
which ports. For example, login scripts in the school may connect a LaserJet 2200 to LPT2 for all users, a DeskJet
692 to LPT3 for students, and a LaserJet 4P to LPT3 for teachers. During workstation prep, those three drivers
must be installed as local printers assigned to the specified ports.
NOTE: The UNCs are NOT required during
setup. The network location of the printers
should be handled exclusively by login scripts.
Account Policy: On the PDC, run User
Manager for Domains. Under Policy >
Account, change Account Lockout settings.
Set "Lockout after" to 30 bad logon attempts,
“Reset count after” to 10 minutes, and
“Lockout Duration” to 10 minutes.
   Logon passwords are case-sensitive under
   Windows 2000. Student can only log on to the
   domain with the password “go”, not with “GO”.
   Adjusting the Account Lockout settings in this
   way prevents the student account from being
   inadvertently locked out if several students have
   Caps Lock engaged while logging on.

Tech Account: For best results, set the Tech
account to use the student account’s login
script. The Tech account is used during
setup. During first logon, NOD32 Anti-Virus
will automatically install from and customize
itself for the school’s network. If the Tech’s login script does not include a drive mapping to the network share
containing the Division standard \NOD32 folder, that will not happen. Also, setting up printers is far easier when the
computer’s ports are mapped to the correct UNCs of the network printers.
Important note about login scripts: Some schools have a line which bypasses the script for servers. The line looks
something like this –
IF "Windows_NT"=="%OS%" GOTO NETTIME
This line MUST be deleted, because that condition will trigger the bypass on Windows 2000 workstations.
Also, some schools have KiXtart statements in the Windows NT portion of their login scripts. Lines like –
IF @WKSTA="SCH021" GOTO NETTIME
ENDIF
These lines MUST be deleted, as they will cause the script to abort. @WKSTA is a macro which DOS does not
recognize. The single = sign in the IF statement is illegal in a DOS script. ENDIF is not a recognized keyword.

Checklists: Print enough checklists so that there is one for every workstation. Follow the steps in order
systematically, keeping all workstations in the lab at the same step in the procedures. New for the GX260s:
Techs familiar with the OptiPlex GX150 images will notice several changes in the GX260s.

1. NIC Support: Drivers are pre-installed for both the D-Link DE528 and DE530 combo cards. Schools receiving
   GX260 workstations before their LAN has been upgraded to Cat 5 can obtain recycled combo cards from A/V
   Computer Repair to use in the systems until the network is upgraded.
2. NOD32 Anti-Virus is installed, but requires the standard Division \NOD32 distribution folder be available in a
   mapped drive at first logon in order to automatically customize itself to the local network.
3. Data Partition: The size of the D: partition has been increased to 50% of the total drive size, to accommodate
   plenty of data.
4. Internet Explorer bookmarks are now stored on the D: drive (D:\favorites).
5. The USB keyboard that comes with the GX260s has 7 programmable buttons, instead of just 3.
    Functions of the buttons on the 7-button USB keyboard:

                             Volume Up – NOTE: Please do not change the programming for this button
                    +           as it is the only easy headphone volume control for young students.

                              Volume Down – NOTE: Please do not change the programming for this
                    -        button as it is the only easy headphone volume control for young students.

                 /                           Play / Pause (in Windows Media Player)

                             Home Page (in Internet Explorer) – Customize for school’s preference.

                                           Search Page – Google (in Internet Explorer)

                                          Return to Previous Page (in Internet Explorer)

                                                            Web Messaging

                                           Suspend (press the Power button to resume)

6. Headphone Support: The speakers supplied with the GX260s do not have a headphone jack. It is therefore
   important that all users be taught how to use headphones with these workstations:
         a. Flip open the grey Dell panel on the left-hand side of the front panel.
         b. Connect the headphone to the jack.
         c.   Snap the panel shut.
         d. Use the + and - buttons at the top of the keyboard to raise and lower the volume of the headphones.

The volume control on the speaker will not affect the headphone level. Procedure:
    1. Unpack the workstation, monitor, and speakers. Connect all components, with the exception of the AC
       cord to the CPU.
    2. (if applicable) D-Link Card: If the workstation will be on a coax network, install a D-Link combo card. First,
       ensure the monitor is connected both to AC and to the monitor connection on the CPU, but that nothing is
       powered up. This will ensure that the case is properly grounded at all times. Do not connect the AC cord to
       the CPU. Now install the D-Link combo NIC in slot PCI1 (the upper slot).



                                                                              PCI expansion-card connector 1 (PCI1)
                                                                          1
                                                                              Install the D-Link card in this slot.

                                                                                            PCI expansion-card connector 2 (PCI2)
                                                                                       2
                                                                                            Leave this slot empty.
     3. Power: Connect the AC power cord to the CPU.
     4. CMOS: Power up the workstation, press F2 to access the CMOS, and enter the appropriate password.
        Ensure the following settings are correct:
               a. Boot Sequence: 1. Hard-Disk Drive C: (with checkmark), 2. IDE CD-ROM Device (NO
                  checkmark), 3. Diskette Drive (NO checkmark).
               b. Integrated Devices – Network Interface Controller: (ON to use on-board RJ45 interface; OFF to
                  use D-Link combo card installed in slot PCI1)
               c.   Power Management – AC Power Recovery – Last.
               d. System Security – Chassis Intrusion: Enabled.
               e. Save Changes and Exit.
     5. Mini-Setup: The computer will now boot. A very abbreviated version of Windows setup will run ("Mini-
        Setup").
     6. Computer Name: The first message to appear on screen will be an error message. “The new computer
        name entered is not properly formatted…” Click on <OK> and enter the desired computer name.
        Recommended format – three characters for the school code, three characters for the room number and two digits
        for the node number – e.g. ABC School, Room 125, Node 9 would be “ABC12509”. Make no changes in the lower
        portion of the dialog, regarding the Administrative password. Click on <Next>. Be patient while the information is
        processed.

     7. Domain Name: Leave the default radio button setting at “Yes, make this computer a member of the
        following domain:”. Enter the domain name for the school. Click <Next>. When prompted for a user
        account which can add the workstation to the domain, use the Tech account. Enter the appropriate
        password. Mini-Setup finishes and reboots now.
        If the incorrect password is entered, wait for the Network Configuration message indicating “The user you have
        specified is not permitted to join the machine to the domain. Would you like to proceed for now and try joining a
        domain later?”. Click on <No>. Enter the correct password now. Do not complete Mini-Setup without successfully
        joining the domain!

     8. First Logon: After the workstation reboots, log on as Tech with the appropriate password. During first
        logon, a number of steps will occur automatically. Take no action while the various installers run.
               a. Deep Freeze will install.
               b. Global groups from the domain will be placed in local groups on the machine.
                    All members of Domain Admins, Domain Office Users, Domain Sysops, Domain Teachers and Domain
                    Supervised are made Administrators on the workstation. All other Domain Users are made Power Users.

               c.   The Printers Control Panel is opened.
               d. NOD32 Anti-Virus is re-installed from the network, customized for the school network. (This will not
                  happen if the Tech account’s login script does not map a network drive to a share containing the
                  Division standard \NOD32 distribution folder.)
               e. The installation of Office XP is completed, by loading a document in Word. The following will be
                  displayed on the screen when the Office XP installation is complete:

           The DeepFreeze installer has run and will finish upon reboot.
          Exit Word after reading the document.
           1. Windows Update: Close this document to run Windows Update. If it does not start automatically after closing this document,
           it is available under Tech Use > Originals on the start menu. Install ONLY Critical Updates and do NOT install “Windows
         Automatic Updating” or “Critical Settings > Printers, the HP whose purpose is solely preinstalled. If not required in
     9. Add required printers. In Update Notification” or any update LaserJet III driver is to alert the user to the availability of
        the school, delete this driver. In Settings > Printers > Add Printer, click <Local Printer> but do not
         updates.
        “Automatically detect”.
           2. Print Drivers: Before rebooting, be sure to set up required printer drivers and CHOOSE THE DEFAULT PRINTER! Printer
          drivers can be set up while Windows Update downloads files unavailable to
         Note: Choosing “Network Printer” makes the printerin the background.other users. Always choose LOCAL
         PRINTER.
           3. Thaw: Windows Update requires a reboot. After rebooting, set the system to “boot thawed” and reboot.

30b31b4f-dd98-4b71-af69-4f4e5e5e9e38.doc     Revision: 17 October 2002
          4. Software: With the system thawed, install any additional software required.                        Page 311

           5. Local Profiles: Log on and off once for each user who will commonly use this system. This creates the local profiles, which
           will be “frozen”. Log on last as the user who uses the system most. (When the system reboots, this User ID will appear in the
           logon dialog.) For each user, don't forget to CHOOSE THE DEFAULT PRINTER!
Download ftp://@tech.wsd1.org/pub/info/WorkstationSetup2004-2005.pdf for current procedures.
    Select the port that the printer is connected to by the login script. Note that ports LPT4 through 9 – if needed –
    appear at the bottom of the list, following the COM ports and FILE:. (Tip: To quickly see which LPT ports are
    currently mapped at any time, run Tech Use > Command Prompt, and enter “NET USE” at the prompt.)
    Select the manufacturer and printer. If a message indicates there is already a driver for the printer, keep the
    existing driver and continue the installation. Name the printer and decide whether this is the default printer.
    (The name should be consistent with what was on the older workstations in the lab.) Leave the radio button
    marked beside “Do not share this printer.” There is no need to print a test page from every workstation. Click
    on <Finish>. The printer should now be listed in the Printer Control Panel window. Go to the properties for the
    printer and make any necessary changes now. (e.g. default paper tray, printer memory, etc.)
        Scripting tip: If printers have the same name on all workstations, the SetDefaultPrinter command can be used in the
        KiXtart login script to easily change default printers in the future. This command only works if all workstations use
        the same printer names, though. (e.g. “LaserJet” for the desired LaserJet printer, “DeskJet” for a DeskJet, etc.)

    10. Windows Update. This starts automatically as soon as the Word document is closed in step 8.
              a. Click on <Scan for Updates>.
              b. Click <Review and Install Updates>.
              c.   Locate any Service Pack entries and click <Remove> (e.g. Remove Internet Explorer 6 Service
                   Pack 1. If needed, these must be installed later. See below for more info).
              d. Click <Install Now>.
              e. Click <Accept> to agree to the license agreement.
              f.   Wait while the updates download and install.
              g. Reboot when prompted.

              Important note: Only install critical updates. Do NOT upgrade Internet Explorer to a newer version or
              install any service packs. Service Pack installs will not work prior to this reboot and cannot run
              concurrently with other required updates. Do NOT install drivers. The drivers shipped with this system
              are logo’d for Windows 2000 Professional and should not be replaced. Replacement of some drivers
              (notably the storage drivers) may render the workstation unbootable to the point of requiring re-imaging.

    11. Thaw the machine. Rebooting following Windows Update will complete the installation of Deep Freeze
        and put the system into a frozen state. In order to complete the setup process, the system must be thawed.
        Access Deep Freeze, click the radio button for <Boot thawed>, and click <OK>. Then reboot the system
        again.

              Important note: When freezing or thawing systems, REBOOT. Logging off and on has NO effect.

    12. (optional) Install the Service Pack for Internet Explorer 6. NOTE: This install is optional and creates
        additional work. After installing it, Outlook Express must be removed (again) and additional shortcuts must
        be removed from the Quick Launch toolbar, Start Menu, and Bookmarks. See the detailed steps below:
              a. Run Windows Update, from the Start Menu > Tech Use > Originals > Windows Update.
              b. Click on <Scan for Updates>.
              c.   Click <Review and Install Updates>.
              d. Confirm the desired Service Pack is selected.
              e. Click <Install Now>.
              f.   Click <Accept> to agree to the license agreement.
              g. Click <Next> … <Next> ... etc. as required to install the service pack.
              h. Wait while the service pack downloads and installs. Reboot when prompted.
              i.   The Service Pack will finish installing after logging on again as Tech.
              j.   Open Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs >

30b31b4f-dd98-4b71-af69-4f4e5e5e9e38.doc   Revision: 17 October 2002                                Page 411
Download ftp://@tech.wsd1.org/pub/info/WorkstationSetup2004-2005.pdf for current procedures.
              k.   Click <Add/Remove Windows Components>
              l.   Scroll down the list of components and CLEAR the checkmark for Outlook Express.
              m. Click <Next> and <Finish> as required to complete the wizard.
              n. Find the new Internet Explorer icon on the Quick Launch toolbar, right-click on it and choose
                 <delete>. Must be done in all user profiles.
              o. Open the personal start menu (right-click “Start” and choose <Open>) and delete the new Internet
                 Explorer icon from “Programs”. Must be done in all user profiles.
              p. Open D:\Favorites and delete all icons there, except “Winnipeg School Division No. 1”.
      13. (if applicable) Change target of “Home” button for school. If the school would like students to have
          easy access to a different home page in Internet Explorer, change the target of the Home button on the
          keyboard. This is available on the Start Menu under Tech Use > Originals > DellTouch Programmable
          Keys. Click the graphic of the Home button, and modify the URL as necessary. Be sure to also update the
          entry for “Button Label”. This change is global for all users.
      14. (if applicable) Customize the wallpaper. This is not done via the control panel. Instead, run “Edit Locked
          Wallpaper” or “Edit Unlocked Wallpaper” from the Start Menu under Tech Use. Edit or replace the existing
          files. Any suitable .BMP files may be used, but they must be saved to the locations specified in the system
          policy, which are the files accessed from these shortcuts. Local system policy will undo any attempts to
          redirect the wallpaper to a different filename or location, but the school is free to choose any bitmap file to
          serve as custom wallpaper. “Unlocked” wallpaper appears for all workstation administrators. “Locked”
          wallpaper appears for all other users.
      15. (if applicable) Install additional software.
          At this point, install all additional software which the school has purchased for the workstation(s).
          Always use C:\Program Files. If the software installs to the root of C:\, remember to move the software to
          C:\Program Files. (e.g. Cross Country Canada is installed to C:\Program Files\CCAN.)
          Set the program’s data directory to a folder on D:\. Almost every program saves data to the hard drive,
          somewhere. The issue with Deep Freeze is that programs which save to the C: drive must be modified to
          save to D:, or that data will be lost when the workstation is rebooted. There is no hard and fast rule
          regarding how the target directory is determined:
       Many applications (e.g. Microsoft Office), allow the data directories to be configured directly via Tools > Options.
       In some cases (e.g. Student Writing Center), changing the “Start In” property of the Start Menu shortcut to the desired
        location will set the data directory.
       Lots of programs default to the “My Documents” location for their data. This is ideal, since “My Documents” is assigned
        to D:\ on Division workstations.
       In other cases (e.g. Eudora), the command line of the shortcut is modified to specify the data directory.
       Some programs (e.g. HyperStudio) can only be forced to a new data directory by launching them from a template
        document in the desired location.
       Programs like Arachnophilia “remember” their last save location, so saving once in the desired location before freezing
        will set the directory.
       In still others (e.g. Palm Pilot software), the program will only save to the directory it is installed in; these programs must
        actually be installed to a folder on the D: drive. Install software to the D: drive only as a last resort, after determining that
        no other option is available. None of the pre-installed software on Division Windows 2000 images is installed to D:\.

      16. (if additional software was installed) Set up the Start Menu. If software was installed in the previous
          step, special care must now be taken to ensure that the Start Menu shortcuts are installed properly. The
          most essential rule for shortcuts is this: Always copy and paste – never cut and paste – shortcuts.
             Windows 2000 is installed on an NTFS partition. Because of the way permissions are assigned to profiles,
             failure to take care in this regard can result in shortcuts which do not appear or do not work for some users!

          Arranging shortcuts:
                            Open the “All Users” Start Menu by right-clicking on the Start Menu and choosing <Open
                             All Users>.
                            Double-click “Programs”.

Download ftp://@tech.wsd1.org/pub/info/WorkstationSetup2004-2005.pdf for current procedures.

                           Open the personal Start Menu for the current user by right-clicking on the Start Menu and
                            choosing <Open>.
                           Double-click “Programs” in this menu, as well.
                           In Windows Explorer, open “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Tech
                            Use\Originals”.
                There are now three open windows: “Programs” in the personal start menu, “Programs” in the all users’ start
                menu, and the “Tech Use\Originals” folder of the all users’ start menu.

                Now: (1) backup all new shortcuts to Tech Use > Originals, (2) copy specific shortcuts to appropriate
                submenus of “Programs” in the all users’ start menu, and (3) delete all shortcuts from the personal start
                menu.

                           Copy all folders containing newly-created icons.
                           Paste them in the Tech Use > Originals window. (This creates a backup copy of the newly-
                            created icons.)
                           Delete the folders containing the newly-created icons from their original location. (The
                            personal start menu should now be empty. Close that window.)
                           From the Tech Use > Originals window, select the individual icon(s) (not the folders) that
                            locked users (e.g. Student) require.
                           Copy them.
                           In the All Users’ Start Menu Programs window, double-click the appropriate submenu to
                            contain the shortcut(s) and paste.
                           Never cut and paste shortcuts in Windows 2000. Always copy and paste, then delete the
                            original(s). And always use the All Users’ Start Menu Programs folder.

         Creating shortcuts manually: For a program which does not create its own shortcuts, (e.g. Cross
         Country Canada) –
                           Choose the appropriate submenu – in the All Users’ Start Menu window – to contain
                            the shortcut(s).
                           Create the shortcut there directly or copy and paste it from another location.
                           Do not cut and paste it from another location.

    17. Create the Student profile. Log off as Tech and log back on as Student. Remember, the password is
        now lowercase “go”. In the Windows 2000 environment (Windows NT 5.0), passwords are case-
        sensitive.
            Set the default printer, and make any required changes to printer settings. For locked users, this is
             available on the Start Menu under Programs > Accessories > Printers.
            Click the icon for Internet Explorer on the taskbar. The browser should open to The Winnipeg School
             Division No. 1 home page, Flash site. Wait until the web page is fully loaded and then close Internet
             Explorer.
            Customize software as desired for the student user. For example, if different default image attributes
             are preferred in Paint, set them now.
            If the Internet Explorer Service Pack was installed, delete the extra icons:
                  o Find the new Internet Explorer icon on the Quick Launch toolbar, right-click on it and choose
                      <delete>.
                  o Open the personal start menu (right-click “Start” and choose <Open>) and remove the new
                      Internet Explorer icon from Programs.

    18. Create other user profiles. Log on once for each user who will commonly use this computer (e.g.
        Teacher, Sysop, individual accounts) and – for each of these users:
             Set the default printer, and make any necessary changes to printer settings.
             Customize software settings.
             Delete extra MSIE icons, if Service Pack was installed, from Quick Launch and personal start menu.

    19. Set the default logon name. Log on one last time as the user who will most frequently use this computer
        (usually student).

    20. Freeze the workstation. Access Deep Freeze, select “Boot Frozen”, and reboot.

Lock the case with a plastic tie. Final       important notes:


“My Documents” is the D: drive! – Many Windows applications are set up to use the “My Documents” folder by
default. For this reason, the workstations are configured so that D: drive is the “My Documents” folder. Encourage
staff and students to use the “My Documents” area for saving working copies of their documents, and then to back
them up to locations on floppy disks and/or the network.
Deep Freeze is for everyone! – Deep Freeze is installed on all workstations, both educational and administrative.
After installation, freeze all systems.
C: partition is frozen, but D: partition is not. This means that data saved to C: drive disappears after every reboot,
but data saved to D: (or floppies or network drives) persist.
Because Deep Freeze prevents permanent changes from being made to the C: drive, operating system and
software errors should be much reduced. If software needs to be installed, or other changes made to the operating
system, a technician should be called to thaw the system, make the required changes, and re-freeze it.
Always take Deep Freeze into account when installing software. Make sure permanent data is saved to the D:
drive.
No system in general use – educational or administrative – should be left in a thawed
state.Troubleshooting:


Some Printers Missing from Student Profile – Always be sure to select the “Local Printer” option when adding
printers to the workstation. Local Printers can be assigned to any port. Network login scripts map network printers
to local ports. Local printers are available to all users. “Network Printers” only create a persistent connection to a
network printer for the user currently logged on. These printers are not accessible by other users. Do not add
printers as “Network Printers”.
Not Getting Login Script – Unlike Windows 9x, Windows 2000 will happily log the user on to the domain using
cached credentials, completely transparently. The only clue that this
has happened is the absence of the login script (and all the network
drives it maps). If the login script does not appear to be running, look
in the system tray for the network-disconnected icon (see figure on
right).
If that indicator is present, the network cable may be loose, not
seated properly, or there may be some other network problem.
Computer Account Problems – Network problems occasionally may cause a computer’s account in the domain
to become corrupted. When this happens, domain logon will fail, even though the username and password is
correct, and the network card is functioning correctly. To remedy this problem, follow this procedure at the login
screen:
         a. Click <Options>.
         b. Change the <Log On To> entry to “COMPUTERNAME (this computer)”.
         c.   Change <User name> to “Local Sysop”.
         d. Enter the standard Division password for Sysop.
         e. If a “First Time Setup is not complete.” error appears: click <OK>.
         f.   If the system is frozen, access Deep Freeze, click <Boot Thawed>, and reboot the workstation. Then
              re-start this procedure at step “a” above.
         g. Right-click “My Computer” and select <Properties>.
         h. Choose the Network Identification tab and click <Properties>.
         i.   Click the radio button for “Member of <Workgroup>” and enter the domain name there. Click <OK>,
              and a moment later, <OK> again. And again. Don’t exit yet.

Download ftp://@tech.wsd1.org/pub/info/WorkstationSetup2004-2005.pdf for current procedures.
         j.    Click on Network Identification > Properties again. Click the radio button for “Member of <Domain>”
               and enter the domain name there. Enter the Tech username and password when prompted. Click
               <OK>, and a moment later, <OK> again. And again. Then click <OK> to close the Network
               Identification applet.
         k.    A System Settings Change dialog appears, prompting a reboot. Click <Yes> to reboot.
         l.    After rebooting, change the login screen’s <Options> to again log on to the domain and click the
               <Options> button to hide the domain name.
First Logon Timing Issues – Several automated processes occur during the first logon as a Domain Admin.
Usually, everything works properly, so long as things are allowed to proceed undisturbed. If errors should occur,
log off and on, or reboot. Chances are that setup worked properly. Setup tasks to check, if necessary, are: Deep
Freeze installed, local groups updated, NOD32 configured for school, and Office XP installed. All other setup tasks
are completed manually by the technician.
Software Installation Hangups – Some software installers may appear to “hang” when prompting for file
overwrites. This happens when the program is unable to bring the dialog box to the foreground. If a software
installation appears to have stopped, either press the Windows key to see if another process is active, or press Alt-
Tab to see if there are active dialogs.Checklist          –     Computer Name:
