Our network is becoming progressively bigger and it is getting difficult to manage/maintain all of the computers.
For example, i spent all this morning setting up a new laptop, installing all the software, ensuring the intranet was setup etc. Is there any way i can make network managent easier and ideally free!
For example, an easy way to roll out updates/software, so for example i can uninstall/install software from one location so that all computers are pretty much the same.
I have used RM based networks which are pretty easy, however this is more for educational environments and unfortunately are not free...
Any similar alternatives, not necessarily as powerful, but just to make life a little easier!
