Bypass the RES ONE Workspace composer

posted on
Bypass the RES ONE Workspace composer
When logging on to a RES ONE Workspace managed session, the Workspace Composer is managing your applications, menu items, settings and security. In most cases you want to use the Workspace composer, even for Helpdesk staff and System Administrators. Just create zone rules and workspaces to create exceptions for the administrators to do their job, but more about that in a future post. There are a few use cases where you want to bypass the RES ONE Workspace Composer. Like package, test or troub...

29 reasons to attend the Experts 2 Experts conference
The Experts 2 Experts virtualization conference, formerly known as PubForum, is a bi-annual event organized by Alex Juschin. In my opinion this is one of the few must-attend conferences for any die-hard virtualization specialists. The Fall edition last year was held in Rome, Italy. The next conference, Spring 2017 from 9 till 11 June will take place at Prague, Czech Republic. There are also conferences throughout the year in Sydney, Tokyo and Orlando. Here are my 29 reasons why you definitive...

RESONE Workspace UserSettings location

RESONE Workspace UserSettings location
When using RESONE Workspace, user-specific settings are stored in the Personal Settings folder. The Personal Settings folder is a hidden folder and from a legacy standpoint placed in the home directory of the user. In previous version of RESONE Workspace, RES PowerFuse or RES Workspace Manager, the folder was called PWRMENU. You can change the location of the User Settings folder from the RESONE Management Console. The Personal Settings folder stores the captured user settings of the user. De...

RES ONE Enterprise Console

posted on
RES ONE Enterprise Console
Besides the three standard management consoles of RES ONE Workspace, RES ONE Automation and RES ONE Identity Director there is a fourth console: The RES ONE Enterprise Console. Actually, in total there are 7 RES ONE management consoles. Not only the three application management consoles, but also the web versions of it. RES Software is in the process of slowly moving functionality from the application based management consoles to a web version, just like the RES ONE Identity Director web console...

Goodbye Service Store, Welcome Identity Director !
Remember those days of Citrix rebranding the product names over and over again like WinFrame, MetaFrame, Presentation Server and XenApp ? Now these days are back! Not from Citrix Systems, but this time from the fine folks of RES Software. The RES ONE Service Store product will be rebranded to RES ONE Identity Director and the full RES ONE Suite will be rebranded to RES ONE Enterprise. And this is not the only change, for the RESONE Workspace and Automation products there will be new management c...

RESONE Workspace ProtectLocalCache registry key
RESONE Workspace uses a local cache folder to store the workspace configuration of the user. The location of the cache folder is --RESONE Workspace program folder--\DATA\DBCACHE. By default, this folder is protected by RESONE Workspace and not accessible for the user. In most cases this protection is fine, unless you want to use some of my RESONE Workspace helper tools and/or utilities.  Some of these tools use the local cache to retrieve information of the current configuration. When th...

FIPS or no FIPS, that is the question....
When designing a new infrastructure for a large customer, there was a strong desire to use FIPS compliance with the RESONE Workspace environment.  Since version 2015 the RESONE Workspace software can use Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) compliant security algorithms. Ultimately, FIPS is a set of U.S. government standards that define how and which encryption algorithms are used. It does not make RESONE Workspace more secure. It only forces RESONE Workspace to use FIPS-valida...

Homelab 2017

Homelab 2017
At the beginning of this new exciting technology year I think it is a good idea to share my home lab configuration with my readers. My home lab is a slow process of buying a few bits and bolts every year. And with more than 25 years IT experience, i have collected quite a collection. As an independent VDI/SBC/Workspace consultant I find it important to have access to proper gear and toolset, same like a shoe maker wants to have the best shoe-making tools. Every year i have a budget to buy or ...

Sending User Notifications with RESONE Workspace
For me, when designing user workspaces, user experience is key. In my opinion the system should notify a user when something with the user workspace is wrong. For example, when a RESONE Workspace UserSetting location or Home folder is not available, the system should notify the user that it is not available and should ask to contact the system administrator. This can be done with a simple message box, but when using Microsoft Windows 10 it is much cooler to use a notification from the Action Cen...
