Would something like crackmapexec do the trick? I've started playing around with it to validate that some of our security configs are actually doing what they're supposed to and it can be used to dump user lists from a lot of the native windows locations. Not sure that it would get everything that you're looking for but "hacking" tools might be something to consider in addition to the typical bevy of PS and Windows commands.
Any opinions on the dedupe software and the search software r appliance?
For this kind of thing, you don't need software for a couple reasons. One is that you need to manually maintain the master file system for them to share. And second because you can just write a script that compares checksums and lists the master list of files for you to store. No need for software as the OS can already do this.
It depends. If you need the extra 100 nits of brightness, touchbar, and you know you need the fan from extended compute then get the pro. Otherwise save the couple hundred and get the air.
You can still get the 8 core cpu and 8 core gpu in the air. It's pretty much the same minus the stuff mentioned above. The battery is also a tiny bit smaller and I think the microphone is less "studio quality".
Yeah, watch out for the 7 core Air. Cheaper, but just splurge.
Also the Air is lighter. For a student on the go, likely will be appreciated.
Great experience with Insight Canada account managers. Not so great experience with CDW.
Ingram Micro and Synnex were ok, RMAs always were a pita.
In the US we have to use Insight Canada for account managers. And they were terrible. We've had so many customers totally screwed because they lost their licenses, had no way to be reached. At one point, even Microsoft had no way to reach Insight!
But It might come down to having the users added either via script or manually to that group you want and then applying the permissions. However Microsoft Exchange has been cumbersome to apply permissions by groups. I would recommend to do it by user instead.
Yea it does sound like that might end up being the case. I'll poke at it some more, as I'm not quite ready to give up on it. Thanks for the reply.
