Q: Do you have an organized Vista deployment plan?
This might seem too basic. But let's face it, without a step-by-step Vista deployment plan, it's impossible to be truly prepared to perform any mass deployment. One element that is always lacking amongst admins and consultants is the testing phase to the plan. Before you deploy Vista en masse, you should set up a few test systems to make sure you document any problems (and their corresponding solutions) before you proceed on a large scale. Will you perform an overnight (or over-weekend) deployment? What impact will that have on the client's users? Have the people been trained first? These are all the questions you need to ask yourself before jumping in headfirst.
