Thanks. This will be good to make sure I don't miss any high points to demonstrate why it is a bad idea for this particular business.

Cost Pros and Cons for VDI in DataCenter
I was just asked to provide proposals for a small company to evaluate; one for replace the in-house server and continue the cycle of replacing PCs, and one to go VDI with the Host in a data center.
Do any of you ( @scottalanmiller ) have a bullet point list that covers the pros and cons of VDI v. Traditional compute environments?
I'm going to write it all up for them, but I don't want to miss any of the hidden costs and benefits.
RE: Taking over IT for a small business
@JaredBusch How so?
Go back and count the steps that you just listed.
It's two clicks from SC, and since we only work in domain environments, we import the GPO as part of our on-boarding. Since we script everything, and our next customer is not our first customer, the workload to accomplish the auto power on task as described here is undetectable.
RE: Can't move Stream_Autocomplete.
I have used the Nk2edit And you can push it to the Office Cloud Autocomplete from an NK2 or the Stream file. However when Nk2edit can’t read a file it is usually corrupted and you need a previous version of the file.
The current file is usable under the in house exchange,, and I have restored a few versions from backup.. Still no luck.. I may just be SOL.
Streaming music for office (or anywhere)
Had a customer call and ask us to come and setup 10 Sonos speakers for their office. They said they picked them up because their overhead system was static-ee.
I assured them this was the wrong approach because commercial amps with 70v speakers don't just go bad all at once. It had to be FM reception.
It was. But they really wanted the Sonos so they could stream music. I told them this was silly because they already had a beautful sound system in place. They just needed a new source.
I installed a Nexum Tunebox2 https://www.nexum-design.com/tunebox2 for them and I have to say, it is truly sweet.
Use any smart device or PC or MAC to tell it what to stream, and then you can disconnect and it will sing forever. Of course it'll do other things too. But set and forget was the goal.
Just thought I'd share about this little box. $64 on amazon.
