RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Monday July 25, 2016 a€“ Australian athletes will be housed in a hotel instead of the Olympic Village in Rio over concerns about the condition of the official accommodation. With less than two weeks to go before the start of the 2016 Games, Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) chef de mission Kitty Chiller confirmed that Australian athletes would not be moving into the village, saying rooms failed to pass a a€?stress testa€? standard. The first Australian athletes, boxers and canoeists, were scheduled to move into the village on Sunday, according to Business Insider Australia. Rioa€™s mayor, Eduardo Paes, responded to Chillera€™s concerns by joking that a kangaroo in the village would make the Australians feel more at home. The 31-building village will house 18,000 athletes and officials at the height of the Games, which start on August 5.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro is designed to deliver an enterprise-class user experience in a tablet form factor.
To answer this question, I tested how well the tablet integrates into an existing Windows domain. It’s clear, however, that for business networks with Windows domains deployed, the Surface Pro is the most compatible ultraportable device there is. I tested Surface Pro by stepping through some of the more common administrative Windows domain tasks a network admin would perform with any business client. Of course, you have to connect Surface Pro to your Windows network in order to join it to a domain. Yet, the main purpose of a tablet is to travel light, so I connected the Surface Pro wirelessly to my network.
As with a Windows desktop, Windows 8 on Surface Pro has the native firewall on by default, so you’ll need to make an exception to allow the tablet to join the domain. I joined the Surface Pro to my domain and then logged in as a typical domain user, meaning no domain admin permissions.
I can see this welcome screen as a potential inconvenience for a user who may already have a Surface tablet set up. After joining my domain I did notice some lag while browsing shared folders on the network. As with a domain user logged into a workstation, domain policies associated with user accounts flowed to the Surface Pro.


Oddly, Windows on the Surface Pro popped up a message that Paint’s publisher (Microsoft) could not be verified!
Remote App is a good way for Surface Pro users to run heavy processing applications like video editors or CAD that would likely run slowly locally, provided they have a speedy connection to the Remote App server, of course.
Storage Spaces is another business-class feature in Windows 8 on the Surface Pro, and another feature I believe many users will find handy. BitLocker is another business-class feature, allowing Surface Pro users to secure data on the tablet using AES encryption.
Fortunately, using Group Policy in Server 2012, administrators can control BitLocker access.
These are just a few of the many capabilities of a Surface Pro tablet integrated with a Windows domain. South African mobile networks enable fraudsters to steal your airtime, and there is very little you can do about it. Even if your budget is tight, there is no excuse not to have the right gadgets and tech accessories.
Hackers have breached a point-of-sale credit card systems portal used by many prominent South African companies.
Another 0% fee increase will mean the beginning of the end for public universities in South Africa, warns Jonathan Jansen. I can definitely say that whatever business features a desktop client running Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8 can run, the Surface Pro can run, too.
Here are my observations and tips on integrating Surface Pro with specific Windows domain features.
Since this was the user’s first time logging into the domain with the Surface Pro, the tablet went through that initial Windows 8 welcome screen which shows users how to move the mouse around and other orientation tips. They have to take the tablet into the office, log into the network, and then have to go through the orientation again. Of course, I was connected wirelessly, and there is a lot of Wi-Fi interference in my testing space. I have my domain set up to auto-create a user’s home directory, and to map a drive to a publicly shared folder upon first login.


This is a Windows Server feature (introduced in Server 2008 and honed in Server 2012) that allows administrators to publish applications to an IIS server for end users to access remotely. From the Surface Pro, I was easily able to browse to the URL I set up for end users to access applications. Yet, I could still open Paint remotely and use it on the tablet as well as the locally installed Paint app. Because tablets are shuttled between personal and business use, a tablet owner may have many passwords and usernames to remember.
With Storage Spaces, you can add an external USB drive to the Surface Pro and create a storage pool either to extend your storage capacity (the Surface Pro comes with a 128GB SSD) or to create a mirror to protect data stored on the local drive. I wanted to test this feature out because domain administrators may not want to give users with Surface Pro tablets connected to the network the ability to encrypt the tablet’s drive. For example, you can give domain users the ability to only use BitLocker on their own removable USB drives, or disable the feature altogether.
I was more concerned when Surface Pro simply froze on me when I tried to turn on the Network Discovery feature. I saw the appropriate folders and mappings on the Surface Pro after logging in as a domain user. I tested connectivity by simply publishing Microsoft’s Paint app to my server and then accessing it from the Surface Pro. The feature runs well on Surface Pro and, of course, is a capability of Windows 8, not Surface Pro.
Windows system administrators will find the Surface Pro tablet as easy to integrate into a domain as any workstation.
And the on-screen keyboard only pops open automatically when tapping text fields within the Windows 8 modern interface. I see Remote App as a great way for Surface Pro users to access line-of-business apps that admins may not want to install locally on a tablet.
