      Yes, that is a good way - but I think there's some steps you have to do to Trivoli so it doesn't get confused.

      A procedure I found very helpful setting up new PCs and which saves a lot of time. I take one of the PCs and get it configured with all of the updates and proprietary programs available from the portal. Then I make an image of the hard drive using a program called "Aconis PC Backup and Recovery". I then install this image on each of the other PCs changing the PC name on each on afterward so they are unique on the network. It takes a long time to do the first one but the remaining PCs can be done in an hour or less each. I hope this might be helpful to others.

      Thanks for the information and warning. My stake didn't have Sophos problems in our FHCs. Rather, a few of our clerk computers got messed up by Sophos when it found a false positive in its auto-updater.

      I usually disabled Windows Update until I am ready to install updates. I hate to have those updates download themselves in the background while I am doing other things.

      I will let you know what image I receive, as well as any problems I find.

      > Be careful with this one, as the image that FHC Support sends you is the defective image I have been trying to install on 10 new pcs they sent our FHC. I have spent over 50+ hours trying to get these new pcs running with very little help from SLC. The image is dated Nov 2012, so it is over a year old. They also control all the updates to Windows 7, so it was installing a years' worth of updates at the same time I was trying to install FHC software. It was just chaotic! I finally had to do it on my own without their help since I was given very little. The Sophos is also defective. The image was created at the time that Sophos created a huge problem for the FHC's. So, be careful what you ask for. It is NOT a Windows 7 OS cd, but rather THEIR image that you have to make work on the pcs they sent you.
