Steady State In a Domain Environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently using Compuguard Cornerstone in a Domain Environment. We have 700+ computers and 10000 accounts that could access the computers. I was wondering if SteadyState would revert the computer back to a previus setup even if the Profile is not added to be protected. Or can we setup a "Domain account" profile in steady state that would protect any domain account that logs in?

  • Hi driscoma, I would like to inform you that Windows SteadyState does not detect domain users. That is to say, domain accounts cannot be displayed in User Settings section. Also, you can check the table below:

    Comparison of Locked Profile and Windows Disk Protection




    When applied

    Locked Profile

    Removes changes user has made to the user profile. Cache files, global history, and environment settings are cleared or restored to the default state.

    User profile is restored to the default state configured by administrator.

    At log off of user account.

    Windows Disk Protection

    Removes changes a user has made to the profile, to the system partition, and any files or data the user has saved on the shared computer or to another partition or drive.

    If Remove all changes at restart option is selected, restores the entire system partition to the original state configured by the administrator.

    At restart of shared computer.


    Note: If a user profile is locked, Windows Disk Protection restores the profile to its default configuration regardless of whether the locked profile is saved to the protected system partition or on another drive.
