(not because we roam much, but for backup, recovery and control purposes).




1. Don't see how having a roaming profile helps do a backup or recovery (unless you mean the files stored in the profile but that to me actually works semi against backups by being maybe a bit too fluid or a roaming profile failure to save)
Don't see how that gives you control either.

Supporting profiles on Windows 9x is kludgey at best. Is slow as heck and often time problematic.
Redirecting the My Documents folder to a network share and lettting users know not to save data locally on the system would be better (imho) Oh well, what can I say. I'm a roaming profile hating kinda guy - just plain dislike that technology. I hate the few seconds it takes to load local settings let alone network copied data.

There is no PAUSE in KiXtart unless you mean SLEEP which I use quite often. I use WKIX32.EXE and hide everything, which you can't do on Windows 9x as it has to launch from a batch file and NT does not.

There are methods to force single logon, you can search the board here or on Google and you should be able to find tools/methods to do such.

use the UNC for PST location, not mapped drives

the given suggestions are more like request for help.
clearly, the second on is about script control and not a single feature to be added.

now, the first suggestion would require a huge product to really work as kixtart only solution and thus is not really in the scope of current kixtart development.
and again, you can make a kixtart script that deals with your suggestion.

And both suggestions can be utilized via a combination of already existing tools. Just check this BBS.

I used mapped drives as they're easier to use eg if U: is home directory then U:\Outlook would be the folder where PST is stored - and it would be U:\Outlook for each user as each user has their own unique home directory set on NT's User Manager for Domains. Why do you recommend using UNC?

Backup, control and recovery:
BACKUP - the server has daily external backups, the workstations don't. As the profiles are stored on the server they are included in the backup.
CONTROL - as profiles are stored in one central place they are easier to administer and maintain.
RECOVERY - when a workstation dies I find most of the time is lost restoring settings - not re-installing software, with roaming profiles the settings are restored automatically.

I've searched for single logon - loads of hits but nothing that does the job.

Jens - thanks for your post. I've checked the BBS but can't find the tools I need. I'm new to this and would appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction. Thanks. Kevin

kevin, don't know if you realized or not but this thread is for kixtart suggestions for kixtart development.
none of your suggestions fall into that.

you have clearly wishes of scripts or programs or whatever that do a lot of stuff, but, please go ahead and open your own thread instead of blowing this one wide open.

"... there is no exact match, any application whose title string begins with title is activated....:

On a few occasion this feature has been troublesome. I would like to see it do a exact match by default, and then add a wildcard ability for if you need to do partial string matches.

A useability suggestion, and definitly a high priority one!!!!

The abilty to support [out] variables in COM objects, variables that are created by the COM object itself, and passed "out" of the method call. This would be usefull for some devious sneaky WMI calls. I think these [out] variables are subtely different that your std byref type.




Here's my vote for that.

hmm...
the text you quoted though sounds weird.
specifically the last sentence.
what's the difference with out and byRef?
I mean, I can't see it.
