The CSCS Remote Deployment Service for new laptops launched in April 2021. Initial setup of laptops is now is automated and mostly zero touch which significantly reduces the amount of time and in-person interaction with CSCS required for a new device. You will no longer have to come to site to configure a new laptop as this can be done from anywhere! All you will need is an internet connection to get yourself up and running.
CSCS services are built on a standard set of configuration options which ensures consistent results for all users. This means that some configurations are locked down and not configurable which might be an annoyance for some people. Decisions on what to configure and what to leave up to choice were taken with an eye to security and convenience in mind.
This session is aimed to take you through some initial set up questions which we hope will help you to get up and running quickly when receiving your new device. This page will also have links to all the issues discussed for reference at a later date if needed.
