The Standard Windows Operating Environment (SWOE) should be an extension of the SOE.  Its purpose should be to provide all the services listed in the SOE to the best of its ability.

The standard set of services


Windows machines will be configured to use DHCP over IPv4 as default.  In some cases IPv6 maybe used.  DHCP information will be edited in either Rincewind or Machine Manager depending on subnet.


Windows machines must be joined to an Active Directory using the inbuilt Windows tools.  This allows us to provide security policies integral to the SOE guidelines.  Currently Faculty of Science machines are joined to the SFAC domain in most cases, and the UOA domain in very minor cases.
