why do you need so many user per machine?
do you really have 2400 users using EACH machine?
the network load and server load must be unbelievable!
I should add that no, it's not possible to remotely rebuild SBFS. You'd need to do an emergency boot on each machine.
Network load and server load is not much of a problem as only around a 10th of the clients at most will be connected at one time as well as it is only set to synchronise every 60 minutes with a preboot delay of 1-60 minutes.
Thanks for the response anyway. I would consider creating other groups but the issue is a user could potentially need to login any laptop in the trust.
I'm not sure how deep you are into this roll out but the way we have it setup is we have helpdesk accounts, local site IT accounts and the user who owns the machine. We use a script to do this on install. We went thru the same thing you did but we only had 200 users at the time we made the change. Initial sync was painful. Secondly, the nice thing about not having 2400 users on a machine is it adds some security.
Thanks for the response, we have almost completed the rollout, however we have alot of users in the database that have never logged into a laptop so these will be removed to free space as a temporary measure.
