The life-cycle "model" is a more general term for a category of methodologies, and a software development "process" a more specific term to refer to a specific process chosen by a specific organization.

we are looking at controls for a new HR and Payroll system. We need to ensure users permissions in the system are free from fraud/misuse, through effective separation of duties and granting of access permissions. Are there any specific types of permission in HR and payroll systems where no one officer should be able to perform multiple tasks without a secondary officer involved, e.g. separation of duties/'high risk' functions from a fraud/inappropriate use angle.

I am looking for a setup in a cubicle rental office

Clients rent out a cubicle on a per month base and get a computer with some applications included in the monthly payments.
I am Looking for a quick and efficient way to quickly get a machine running for the costumer, and when the customer leaves get the machine bake to a clean installation (with the applications) ready for the next costumer. And with as low of investment possible.

I was thinking of the following, but not sure if it’s available and recommended.

Have a cheap server just for AD DNS and GPO [deployment rule]. Then create a hyper v machine template configured the way it should be delivered to the costumer. When renting out a cubicle deploy a Virtual Machine from a Template on the server to the desktop at the costumer’s desk (window 10 support hyper v), and when the customer leaves bring down the vm and deploy a new one.

The other option would be doing an image, but is no more recommended by Microsoft and thy recommend using configuration service provider

Terminal server or having the vm on the server would require a expensive server security liability, and no down time on the server.

Hello everyone,
I have a strange problem.  I have configured a group policy to enable folder redirection.  The user account is in the appropriate OU and I did not change any permissions on the delegation tab.  I am able to ping the DC and ping the server that it is redirecting to by host name.  This has been tested on two different computers and it is still not working. Any ideas?

One of the Experts here on EE suggested GFI Languard.  So, we bought it and have  had it running for a few months.  As I get further into it and want to take advantage of its capabilities, I naturally have questions.

Being a "good customer" I figured to start on the community forum.  But I can't log in and I can't set up a new account.  I have LOTS of email addresses available and can set up new ones.  Yet, no matter which one I enter for a new Registration, it says "already used".  Can't be true of course.

Telephone customer support takes one to a menu that has nothing to do with customer support and, if you politely wait after not responding, it says "Goodbye".

I may be in the market for 3rd party Q&A at least.  Or, what might you suggest?

hi guys,

I'm currently managing an IT Operations team. I've been asked by our new head to come up with a way for me/us to measure in some shape or form their progress on a weekly basis.

We use Zendesk for our ticketing system which is very comprehensive. He wants us to find a way of knowing, how many particular jobs were started, closed, including things such as 'what got in the way?'. Along with that, he wants to know a way of measuring project progress in a similar way.

Do you guys have any measuring methods that you use at your work places? Or advised others on how to better do something similar?

Thanks for helping

Any recommendations from experience?

Hello,

After reading through McNkife's article https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/24599/Free-yourself-of-your-administrative-account.html I have some questions on how it relates to YubiKey.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro in a workgroup setting where I have only two accounts in Windows: a user account and an admin account (the default administrator account renamed per Microsoft recommended Best Practices). The user account has YubiKey assigned to it and I was about to do so for the admin account but I'm not sure about a couple of items I have included below:
  • Can the YubiKey work in a no password scenario?
  • If I assign the YubiKey to the admin account will that require the YubiKey for every elevation prompt?
  • Is having the YubiKey assigned to the admin account even bettering my security if I apply the article above to my machine - Are there any viable benefits?
  • If the settings annotated in the article above go wrong (get corrupted) is there a potential to be locked out of the admin account forever - what are the downsides (if any) to this idea expressed in the article
