Login Shadow Indicator
[DE] In einer reinen Microsoft Terminal Server Umgebung werden Anwender nicht informiert, wenn ihre Sitzung gespiegelt wird. Man kann zwar konfigurieren, dass der Anwender eine Bestätigung geben muss, wenn die Spiegelung angefordert wird, er kann aber nicht erkennen, wie lange die Spiegelung aufrecht erhalten wird.
[EN] In pure Microsoft Remote Desktop environments users are not informed if a shadowing session is active. You can configure that a user needs to confirm if a session should be shadowed but the user cannot see if the shadowing is finished. The Login Shadow Indicator shows a tray icon, as long as the user is being shadowed.
Virtual Desktop Sizing Estimator
With the Login Consultants Virtual Desktop Estimator making calculations of your VDI or SBC environment will be a lot easier. By using this calculator, there can be decided which amount of VDI or RDS machines on one single Hypervisor can be hosted. Or, during the initialization of a project, choices can be made on what hardware needs to be purchased.
Do note that this tool gives an estimation. This estimation is based on Login Consultants‘ experience with Performance Scans, but it does not guarantee that this estimation is the correct configuration of one’s environment.
Simple Task Manager
Most business environment have a (somewhat) restricted workspace. The IT department is always discussing the need of the Windows Task manager for end-users. This is because the Windows Task Manager is unmanageable and gives away a whole lot of information about performance, services, processes and possibly the name of other logged on users on that machine. All kinds of information not necessary for an end user to know. For that reasons the IT department frequently prevents the use of the Windows Task Manager. This also prevents a user to close an application that is not responsive anymore.
The Simple Task Manager gives back that functionality to the user without all the noise and showing unnecessary/unwanted information. A user gets an overview of their application windows with the possibility to put the application in front of all the other applications or simply end the task. This will prevent the need for a user to call the servicedesk to simply close a stuck application.
Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F)
Every time you build you’re base Image from scratch or update it, you must seal it before deploying it to your cloned devices. No matter if you are using Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop with Machine Creation Services (MCS) or Provisioning Services (PVS), VMware View or Microsoft only, BIS-F supports it all. Optimize you’re base Image before deployment, deletes unique identifier to prevent duplicate/ghost entries on your management server (Anti-Virus, SCCM, SCOM, etc.…), delete junk files, defrag you’re disk etc. All these necessary steps and much more has to be run manually, but here is a better way. Here’s the right tool for the job.
Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F) is 100% PowerShell driven and addresses tons of optimizations plus it has a great logging feature.
