A friend was asked to set up a server and some desktop computers in a local 
junior school. The school had a contract with a major education "provider" 
which required their IT system to be provided and maintained only by that 
company, and the school was not allowed to access the system, so the new 
computers were to be a totally separate independent system and hidden from 
the contractor.
