    Hi All,

    Apologies for the newbie questions. Our company has bought Windows 10 LTS – 8 x 5070 and a wyse laptop. I am struggling with how to implement this solution for the fact that we have to follow specific SOP for passwords. Leaving it with the simple dell default password is not going to work. Plus we cannot share with different employees the same password for all those 8 devices.

    I wonder how other companies would try to implement this solution? Do you just leave the User account and Admin account alone and secure the password? Give it to users who will use it? Do you create an account for the employee itself and have them login and change the password?

    Also, I noticed that when I try to install Cisco AnyConnect software it fails even with Write Filter off. Is there any way to disable the write filter completely or uninstalling it? Although, we have success installing TeamViewer Host on it without any issues with the Write Filter.

    What if we wite the existing OS and install our Windows 10 Enterprise, is there a way for us to get the WDA software agent so we can at least connect it to Wyse Management?

    Thanks

    Several questions here. I will try to answer all.

    1. Never ever think of permanently disabling or removing the Write Filter. UWF is not only to prevent unwanted changes to the OS but also prevents the flash memory from getting corrupt. A flash memory module is not able to handle 1000s or millions of read/write attempts. It will simply kill the module in a few months.
    2. Saying this, do not install a full Windows on the units. First, you face the same issue like #1 and second, you will not be able to install the WDA agent on it
    3. You can add the device to your domain and let your users use their domain credentials.
    4. Most companies leave the User account as it is and just change the Admin password.
    5. Installing bigger apps can be done. Disable UWF. Attach a USB memory stick and alter the tmp and temp variables in Windows to point to that stick. Install your app and enable the UWF again.

    Thanks, CG. Your reply helps a lot. I have found that using WMS sure makes life easier. I could set the policies remotely and don’t need to even touch the thin clients. I’ll try the #5 for Cisco AnyConnect, we don’t really need to use it for anything other than connecting to Horizon gateway. Maybe one employee needs to have his DVD recording software installed.

     

    Although, I find that by using the Groups and Policies I can’t find how I can add different RDP connections or allow them to run RDP clients and let them enter the host instead. It only allows me to create one RDP connection with specific host attached to it. Is this where I need to create multiple policies for different people so that could use RDP to connect to their persistent VMs? They are regular Windows VM with a static IP those has nothing to do with their VDI/Horizon clients.

    Thanks

    Yes, you would need different policies in this case.
