Application Testing for Vista Lots of things work, some things don’t Some things require workarounds to install properly See http://vista.ad.ufl.eduhttp://vista.ad.ufl.edu Send updates regarding software you have tested to firstname.lastname@example.org@ad.ufl.edu Test your user’s applications on Vista before deploying Vista!
Vista and Security Properly deployed, Vista is more secure than XP Use ‘User Access Control’ (UAC) “Confirm or Deny” See the Reliability and Performance Monitor for audit trail of software installs and failures
UF Image The Vista TAP Group is producing a UF Image for Vista The image will be available for download soon. See http://vista.ad.ufl.eduhttp://vista.ad.ufl.edu You can add drivers and software to the image The image will be shipped on computers sold to UF Use of the UF Image is not required
TPM and BitLocker Most systems do not yet have TPM modules with drivers that can support BitLocker Deployment of BitLocker would be better with university-wide coordination through the Help Desk and UFAD Planning is underway to support BitLocker Local proof of concepts are encouraged. Local deployment is discouraged
Vista Deployment Strategy Think incremental Run Vista where apps have been tested Run Vista where hardware supports it Run Vista to support change agents Think attrition As old machines are replaced, new machines are deployed with Vista (where appropriate) Don’t upgrade, don’t run on old hardware, don’t run without testing apps Do learn about Vista, do deploy Vista, do learn from and participate with the TAP group
