Sharing knowledge about (managed) workspaces

A customizable notification window

Not a big blog this time but a short one.
We had a migration coming up at my current job and wanted to notify the users that they were working on the new environment.

So time to make small popup window.
The popup needed to have a couple of requirements.

  • Customizable (Editable text)
  • Have hyperlinks in the text
  • Had to run when users logs on
  • No timer like the popups of RES Workspace

So I made a little popup that loads a HTML file stored on local or on the network.

Step by step installing Ivanti User Workspace Suite

Since the moment that Ivanti took over RES Software it was time to invest some time in the product portfolio of Ivanti. So it’s time to install Ivanti User Workspace. I will share the simple install of this suite. The configuration I will blog a later time. Otherwise the blog will be to long.

The first thing you need is ofcourse the software. This can be found on the website of Ivanti (You need an account)

The first thing I did (Like I also did for the installation of RES One) was creating a service account for the database(s). In this case I made SA_Ivanti as an user.

You can also do this using powershell:

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
New-ADUser `
 -Name `
 -Path  "OU=Users,DC=LAB,DC=Local" `
 -SamAccountName  "SA_Ivanti" `
 -DisplayName "Service Account Ivanti" `
 -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString "Welcome0123!" -AsPlainText) `
 -Enabled $true
Add-ADGroupMember "Domain Admins" "SA_Ivanti";
