Vista Imaging for Secure Mobile Labs (Activation??) RRS feed

  • Question

  •      I work for a major University.  I've read the documentation on imaging with Vista and its associated Activation requirements. 

         How in the world am I supposed to set up an imaging solution for mobile lab environments where the laptops (for security reasons) will not be connected to the internet at all?  Additionally, these laptops will have to be reimaged periodically (sometimes less than 30 days, sometimes more) many times.   Is there really no solution for this common need?????  The laptops will not be able to "dial home" for the periodic Vista Activation check.  In short, we have Volume License Keys with no workable solution.
