Automate and standardize

Before the upgrade, take the opportunity to automate and standardize.

  • Relocate client code on the desktop. If data is in a non-standard location, consider moving it to the recommended location for multi-user installs. For users who frequently change machines, consider a roaming user deployment.
  • Set or reset mail quotas.
  • Update configuration settings.
  • Enforce consistency using policies. For example, use consistent install choices, bookmarks, preferences, certification schemes, hierarchies, etc.
  • Improve load balancing of users across your environment.
