sysprep 2008R2 production box
Posted on 2014-01-29
Our tech team recently used a bad template to build a 2008 R2 print server. Sysprep was not run or did not run on this template and now we have issues.
This server has hundreds and hundreds of printers (700+) installed on it, they have been connecting users for 3 weeks.
Recently a tech tried to add a new user from another domain, the domain in question was built on the same vmware infrastructure from the same template is my suspicion.
So, now I have one, perhaps up to 2 domains more that cant connect properly to the new print server. Interstingly enough, the other 2 domains have no issues because they have no interaction with each other.
I have researched NewSid and have experience with it, and it will not work with this 2008R2 server at all.
Is sysprep an option here for a production level server with this many users on it? It can be done in the middle of the night, or we can cut it off completely and do it.
Thoughts an opinions?
