Windows 10 Upgrade

This project aims to consider the implications of the upgrade to Windows 10 and then to plan the upgrades of all Managed Desktop machines.

Project Documentation

The Informatics Windows 10 OU has now been created:

Significant Changes

  • No roaming profile by default
  • No AFS client
    • This project requires all admin home directories and AFS group space to be moved to DataStore before upgrading to Windows 10.

Current Issues

  • Acrobat Reader missing --- pdf reader available in Edge
  • Thunderbird missing --- we would have to request this, may switch all windows users to Outlook
  • eFinancials and eRecruitment require installation from the Software Centre by the user of an IS supplied plug-in (eRecruitment and eFinancials Java Configuration).


  • The build works on laptops too, with one additional step - to add it to the local AREA SDX Mobile Desktop security group via AD. Step 1 of the main IS instructions links to a page on how to do that.
